Hello,
So my dentist said that I need 3 first molars taken out via the NHS.
I have since found crown lengthening which I don't think is available via the NHS but private.
I'd just like to know if it'd be possible on a dead tooth? Would they do a root canal beforehand or after? And is it likely to last long? I know the other 2 definitely need to come out so I'm trying to save what I can
Thank you
 
The root canal needs doing first. Otherwise there's no point in the surgery.
