My daughter is a dental assistant. Dentists will always tell you to save all your teeth, by whatever means necessary.
However, I had a back lower molar that I went through hell with. The dentist tried to convince me to try and save it by the whole root canal and
crown method. Because I was poor, I told him to pull it. Long story short, I had been grinding my teeth so badly at night that it was literally in
pieces, so pulling it was the right call. I don't even miss it, it was the very back lower molar.
A dentist will also tell you that if you pull a tooth, it will cause the other teeth to shift. Because my bottom teeth are a tad crowded, I told him
to go for it. Like I said, I don't miss it.
