I am going to see my dentist on Tuesday. However being a bad patient the suspense is killing me. Is there any symptoms so to speak that would lead to a tooth being beyond repair? I am really hoping that root canal is the answer here and not to loose the tooth.
Most of the time a tooth can be saved. If it is not giving you mayor symptoms and most of the mass of the tooth is still ok, the majority of the times the tooth can be saved… there are exceptions, and without seeing it and its X-ray, there is not much more I could tell you about it...
I am afraid you will just have to wait until your appointment… but remember… most of the times, a tooth can be saved!
thank you very much, you have put me at ease
Good luck to you!!.. I'll check with you on Wednesday to see how it went...

Hi, Jay, this is Dr Levy. I was wondering how it went with the dental appointment…
Nice of you to ask. Turns out what I saw was something to do with a crown and not decay from the tooth. So I got all jazzed up for nothing. Was a good visit because after I found out I didn't need an extraction I decided to get badly needed cleaning! Thank you for your help with this. What a great service!
I am glad I was of service to you!!! Good luck!Dr Mariana Levy
