Recovery time on that involved a week of ground foods (I feed raw, so he didn't get whole bones during that time.), painkillers for the first 4 days post-op, and then boneless chunks of meat to chomp through for a while. I went back to feeding his regular diet about 2 weeks post-op and never had an issue. He also was on antibiotics for the infection.
Finn's now 8 and still chews though poultry bones on that side, though he's a little slower than he used to be. The surrounding teeth have not shifted significantly enough to impact the alignment of his remaining teeth. His overall dental health remains good, although the side with the missing tooth has a bit more tartar.
Personally, I will probably always opt for removal vs. reconstruction simply because a tooth that has been damaged will always be weaker and susceptible to further damage. Those cracked teeth are super painful, so if I can avoid a potential second dental problem in the future by removing the damaged tooth, that's what I'll choose.
