Post infection a few months ago my wisdom tooth has become loose. What are the best options for me

Q. A few mnoths ago I had an infection of one of my top teeth next to my wisdom tooth. It has since been slightly loose. I am not keen on extraction so would a cap or crown be beneficial. Or is it best to have it extracted? It is not causing me too much trouble currently. but I am worried if it gets infected again Many thanks

A. A crown won’t improve the condition of an infected tooth. You may wish to consider extraction , gum treatment or root canal before the infection becomes more serious
