    Query about tooth decay between crown and tooth.

    Having a tooth decay between crown and teeth? Wondering what to do? Find advice from experts on this page.

    I had a tooth decay problem and get cavities on both sides of molar teeth. I have done capping on both teeth. There was no space between crown and other tooth. But now I am facing a decay between crown and tooth before cap.
    What should I do?
    This capping was done the second time on both the teeth.
    Awaiting response.

    There is a chance that the decay was not completely removed. So after placing the crown the decay may have spread further causing the difficulty.

    You will have to remove the crown and completely remove the decay. If you have not done the root canal treatment then please proceed with that. And redo the crown.
