When a tooth can no longer be saved, an extraction can be made to preserve the well-being of the patient’s oral health. In this case, severe tooth decay beneath a pre-existing crown has exhausted the tooth beyond saving, making that a tooth a candidate for extraction. Patients with good recovery of healthy bone and gum can consider an implant to replace the extracted tooth.
