If the decay involves the pulp of the tooth, it would need root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) to keep your natural tooth. There is no close replacement alternative to a natural tooth and hence all efforts must be put to save your natural tooth. This involves removing infected tissues in a sequence of steps and filling the roots. Essentially, after the treatment it is a dead and disinfected tooth. Where possible, this would be the better alternative compared to the extraction and replacement with an artificial tooth.
