Extracting a tooth with a crown

....Will this be difficult?

It is one my top molars, the front one, and I am SICK of it. I have spent so much money on this darn tooth. It has a crown, which I've had for nearly a year, but now its acting up again. They told me root canal or extraction.

I dont trust a root canal going right. Nothing else on this tooth does! And, its expensive and i have no dental insurance.

Tommorrow I'm calling up my dentist and seeing if they will just take it out.

I dont CARE about my other teeth shifting. When I have money I will get a bridge or implant.

My question is, will it be hard to take out the tooth since its a crown. i mean, they will take the crown off but how will they get the 'real' tooth out sinc the real tooth has been filed down to nothing?

i dont want to have to go to an oral surgeon.

Re: Extracting a tooth witha crown

A crown on a tooth in and of itself should not complicate the extraction. If your dentist is comfortable extracting teeth then you don't need to see an oral surgeon.

Re: Extracting a tooth with a crown

Thanks, Im going to see if they can take it out tommorrow.

I feel too young to be losing my teeth (i am only 24 and have lost 2 molars due to extraction) but i guess i am paying for the sins of my youth (my parents never took me to the dentist...i guess its their fault....)

I am feeling so sorry for myself today.

Every time I ask someone they say "you are too young to have dental problems!"

I wish I were rich or better yet had dental insurance as a kid!

Re: Extracting a tooth with a crown

The dentist can just cut the crown off first, then pull your tooth. You said that it's a front tooth. You might want to reconsider about getting a root canal as that could save your tooth so you have a chewing surface. What ever you decide I hope your ordeal ends soon.
