Saving a tooth with good prognosis is a no brainer. However, salvaging a compromised tooth is often a grey area. In our daily practice, we are faced with the dilemma of whether to salvage a compromised tooth or to extract and replace with an implant. Attempts at saving such teeth may pose risks for failure in the mid- and long-term, hence a multidisciplinary approach to treatment planning is required. This presentation aims to shed some light on the prognosis of such teeth and discuss the factors which will guide us through the decision-making process for retaining and restoring compromised teeth.
