What should I do if I have dental implants and need radiation therapy?

Why do different dentists disagree on whether I should have a root canal treatment or an extraction and dental implant?
Dentists choose treatment plans based on many different factors. Some of these factors have nothing to do with clinical data. As a patient, your dentist should go through the different treatment options with you so that you understand the treatment itself, and the long term maintenance required with that selection. Keeping the tooth by performing root canal treatment and a crown may mean that the tooth may still crack further and require extraction at a later date.
