I cannot afford to lose another tooth. My lower left wisdom tooth has fully erupted and seems to be in okay health, can I perform regular protective procedures on it such as filling and inlay/onlay?

In short, you can have any work on any teeth. The question is how long will it last? There are a lot of factors like bone and root health, amount of remaining coronal structure, your biting patterns and how thorough is your homecare (brushing and flossing).
