You can go to any dentist. Decay will cost you filling or cap. It will cost you around 2000 per tooth. Cap will cost you more.

My father-in-law is around 70 years old. He has generalized chronic periodontitis since around last 10 years. He complaints of severe pain in max right 3rd molar after accidental contact with mandibular teeth. Tooth has grade 1 mobility. Adjacent tooth is grossly decayed and has only a portion of cusp remaining. I haven't examined his mouth. He cannot undergo extraction due to his medical condition. He's on anticoagulants after angioplasty since last five years. The pain is sharp shooting in nature and lingers on several hours after onset. Please suggest me what would be best for him at the moment. I am a final year student of dentistry.

If his INR, PTTK, PT is within normal range, he can be taken up for immediate extraction of offending tooth. Otherwise stop anticoagulants in consultation with treating cardiologist, and extract his tooth after 48-72 hours. For immediate pain relief he can use paracetamol tablet, get his tooth out of occlusion. Get his bad teeth extracted as and when his medical condition permits.

Hello Lybrate user, now a days implant is the best option for the missing tooth, if dental conditions n medical conditions are favorable. Before extraction of impacted tooth, one OPG should be done.

First take an x-ray of the tooth and confirm whether to do rct or not. Small decays can have fillings done. If it's deep you should get the rct done. Charges can start from 4k excluding crown charges.

Decayed tooth can be filled by artificial material or it can be first root canal treated followed by cap or it could be extracted which can be then prosthetically replaced by taking support from the adjacent tooth. Treatment depends upon the decayed tooth. Kindly consult a Dentist in person.

Hi Lybrate lybrate-user You can try to put a fresh Clove (loung) at where tooth decay is happening. Its give you benefits. Otherwise there is no substitute of Root Canal Treatment. Thanks Regards!

Pre medication is necessary before extracting the tooth so as to get rid of any sort of infection present that will hinder the healing process. So ideally your mother should take premedication which includes course of antibiotics and painkillers for 3 days.
