Is it possible to have an implant bridge to replace a snapped bridge?

Saturday, March 28th, 2009
Q.
I am in the midst of a ‘dental disaster’. I had an abscess on a tooth that was part of a bridge. My dentist referred me to have it out, and to do so they cut the bridge and took out the offending tooth. The clinic suggested I go back in 6 weeks to have an implant if I could afford it. That was 2 weeks ago. Since then, when eating breakfast on Sunday, the rest of the bridge snapped off taking the ‘fake’ tooth and snapping my remaining tooth off at gum level. I now obviously have a huge gap. This gap is upper left, I think these are 4, 5, and 6 (my left). I have been back and agreed to have 2 implants as I can’t afford 3, but now I’m researching a bit more I’m discovering that perhaps 2 implants could be enough for a replacement bridge for all 3 teeth. Do you think that is possible? I am reading that upper teeth are slightly more problematic than lower jaw teeth so does that rule it out? I would rather get it all done in one go with 2 implants if I can. I have a sedation appt next Wednesday to have the snapped tooth out and 2 implants put in. I had impessions taken, but I’m assuming it’s for the temporary plate – but would that be for the implants – in other words, is it too late to ‘insist’ that I have a 2 implant bridge? Please advise. Thank you very much.

Will the crown have to be removed and the root canals cleared?

Saturday, March 28th, 2009
Q.
I have a problem with one of my lower right side teeth. It had a root filing around 1990 with no problems. About 5 years ago the dead tooth stated to break up and so about 2 years ago it was fitted with a crown again with no immediate problems. However about a year ago I stated to get small abscess in the outside gum just below the crown line. It would occasionally bust releasing a small amount of milky fluid and then heal but only to reoccur a few week later. Now the discharge is more puss and erupts every 4 to 5 days. I can feel the pressure of the build up increasing in the interim. I presume I have an infection in one of the root canals? Will the crown have to be removed and the root canals cleared? Many thanks for your advice.
