Post Fixed or Removable Bridge? Help!

I have 2 teeth on my lower right side that are loose and may need to come out. Not only do they have to shave down the 2 adjoining teeth, but one in front of one of them for extra support. The fee for the fixed bridge will be $6500. I am thinking of asking for a removable bridge that hooks on. I have heard, though, that they can loosen adjoining teeth. I forgot to ask him the cost. ut cost aside, I really don't want to shave down 3 teeth. Does anyone have a 2-tooth removable bridge? Also, whatif you have a fixed bridge and then something goes wrong under one of the adjoining teeth? Can they do a root canal or cavity on a fixed bridge? If not, I'd have to start all over? This is so scary, I can't think of anything else. I have to see a periodontist tomorrow to see if it's a gum or tooth problem as x-ray is hard to tell under the crowns I have now, but there is no abscess. If anyone can answer my questions, I would really appreciate it.
