The X ray showed a dark shadow under one of my tooth recently. My dentist concerned that there might be some infection and bone loss. He suggested implant. The tooth has not much left, it has crown, but I don't feel any problem now, the root seems still strong. Do I need implant now or there is any other alternative way for treatment?
Thanks

George

Best to wait and see if things get any worse. Or even better to see another dentist for an opinion. It is never good to rush into anything if you are not in pain.

I would trust your dentist in that one. A dark shadow usually means infection. Why wait til it blows up?
