I have a dead tooth in my mouth and where I live they don't do implant cuz its not a civilized country...they only do bridges....am scared to do the dental bridge cuz of having to cut down the 2 adjacent teeth to attach the bridge therefore I have to sacrifice 2 healthy teeth to replace one and I donít want to weaken the 2 teeth and have decays under the crowns and suffer in the long run from more tooth damage and financial costs for fixing my teeth ?
what happens if I keep the dead tooth and leave it alone ? do u advice me with the dental bridge although havig to compromise 2 healthy two teeth or just leave the dead tooth alone ?
Answer Is the tooth gone? They can only do an implant or brige if there is a space. In the US there is something called a Marilyn Bridge which is bonded to the inside of the other 2 teeth, so they are not cut down. Ask if that is available there. But do not keep an infected tooth under any circumstances, it can cause bad infections which can even kill you.
