Brief Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thank Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thank you for the query. It is possible to restore the broken / damaged molars, but depends upon to what extent the damage is. If the hard structures of the tooth is substantial and damage is extended till soft tissue [pulp] then it can be treated by root canal treatment followed by cap / crown. If the damage is not extended till soft tissue then inlay / on-lay may be considered. If the hard structure is minimal then it better to remove the tooth as the chewing force is maximum in molars region. If you have x-ray and photo of the tooth then it is convenient to give clear opinion regarding this I hope this clarifies you, If you have anything further to ask I am happily available. with warm regards,
