i'm having my front tooth pulled this week because despite having a root canal 7 years ago, the tooth can not be saved.
i'm very upset about it - i'm 27 years old and i dont want to spend the next year of my life being self conscious about my smile.
i know what my options are - i.e. maryland bridge or implant...but i have a few questions...
1. i'm really scared to be getting a flipper, i just can't understand how that is suppose to look anything at all near to normal - is there anyone that has had a flipper for a front tooth and can HONESTLY tell me how it looked and how difficult it was to eat with etc?
2. maryland bridge vs. implant - my dentist says bridge my oral surgeon says implant - hard to know what to do - seems like they both want me to do the procedure that will bring them the money lol
anyone have a maryland bridge for a front tooth? how does it look and how llong will it look "normal"
are implants worth the time and expense - and speaking of expense how much will it cost any ideas?
which will look the most real?
sorry if these questions are repeats, i have skimmed some of the other threads but didnt seem to find anything that answered these questions
