No dear, there is nothing like root cancer. If the cap or the crown is not proper, it sure should be replaced. Wish you the best of your health.

There is nothing like root cancer. But definitely the term is root caries. If there is root caries we can restore it upto some extent. If u can send me the x ray of the tooth i can definitely help you.
