Q.

Bad tooth

Hi there,

I went in for a G-scope in 2009, my tooth was chipped, I then fell pregnant and had bad morning sickess. The tooth that was chipped by the G Scope started eroding with all the vomitting. The tooth was filled 5 times and got the first stage of root canal. Anyway, the filling has just fallen out. My question is: should I let the dentist finish the root canal or have the tooth extracted? There is almost nothing of the tooth left. The dentist wants to finish the root canal.

Thanks
