The crown on my front tooth snapped off taking the bottom part of my tooth with it. The dentist has stuck it back in with 2 posts but says it will not last and I will need an implant as the root canal is to tiny to fill. I went to see a endodontist who said maybe it was possible to fill but he wasn't sure. I saw a third dentist who said the same. Would it be better in the longer term to go with an implant. I had a ct scan and was told I had enough bone for it to be done. I am 60 years old but fit and healthy. I have to be very careful with the tooth and cannot bite on it as it doesn't feel very secure.
