Customer Question

I split my tooth almost 2 months ago....
Shortly after I developed an infection which was resolved with a antibiotic.
I do not have any pain.
Is there anyway to partially save a split tooth.

It depends, in an xray you will be able to see if the tooth is split all the way through. If so I don't feel that you can save it. The tooth may not have to be pulled, a crown or onlay can save the rest of the tooth.

I am confused .On the one hand you say it cannot be saved if it's split all the way thru ( thru what) ?On the other hand you say it may not have to be pulled .....Let's say it is split all the way thru.My goal is not to pull it ....Can that be done?
