im in a mental panic.when I was 10 I had a root canal on my right front tooth.a post and crown
was put over the tooth when the tooth cracked.that was almost 50 years ago.the crown was replaced about 12 years ago.the crown will not stay on the post.my dentist now says I need an implant so a new crown can be put on the tooth.my other alternative would be a bridge since the tooth next to it
also has a crown.I beleave it would be a 4 tooth bridge.if I go that root would
they have to pull the old post and whats left of the tooth out or can it stay
where it is and the bridge go over it.has anyone had this last remaining part of a tooth pulled out.my dentist doesnt tell me much and when I left I was kind of stunned.the crown is still conected to the post but it is getting looser.
can anyone help with some info
