There are often questions and doubts concerning the decision-making process in regard to the prognosis of an individual tooth. Unfortunately in dentistry, as in all biologic sciences, there are no straightforward answers to questions. Decisions concerning the survival of the tooth are often made by specialists without any uniform criteria, usually only on the base of their previous experience. This article will look at the literature in this area to help the practitioner in the decision-making process what to do with the compromised tooth. In order to help clinicians to make better choice, factors and variables that can influence the final decision are discussed as factors influencing initial assessment, periodontal disease severity, fur-cation involvement, ethological factors, restorative and other factors. Although there are many literature data concerning this subject, no simplified and precise criteria are offered; so further work should be done in attempt to make some more uniform criteria concerning this subject.
