|Comment||My dentist told me that eruption is more of a concern if the bottom tooth is removed leaving the upper tooth without another tooth to bite down on due to gravity. There is partial contact with the tooth next to the broken tooth but not much. I think the crown is the better option. Thank You Dr. Teig, I really appreciate the second opinion. Mike|
