I need to either have a tooth pulled or have a root canal done. Pulling the tooth would be much more affordable then having a root canal because after the root canal I will still need a crown. Thinking about pulling the tooth but I heard something about how teeth can spread/shift causing gab between other teeth once you have an extraction done. Is that true?
Answer: Over time if you pull or lose a tooth without replacing it either with a bridge or implant your teeth can start to shift. I understand cost can be a factor, however having a root cancal and crown is normally less expensive the pull and replacing the tooth.
