Mary - CopyMany patients experience continued tooth decay into adulthood.  Crowns are needed to replace large fillings that break and get more decay.   After a root canal done through the crown, continued decay requires tooth removal.  This is a common case scenario for some patients who are genetically predisposed to cavities; and others who were not raised with fluoride in their drinking water.   A dental implant replaces the lost tooth without the need to grind down two good teeth for a bridge; and the best news is that implants do not get cavities!
