Do You Know Why My Dentist Refuses To Give Me A Bridge Instead Of A Partial Denture?

Q.
Hello Dr Moore. I had a tooth removed which was crowned because of an on-going infection and I have a crowned tooth one side and a soon to be crowned tooth the other side. Do you know why my dentist refuses to use a bridge rather than a partial denture? I have looked at implants but I have osteoporosis in the family and I’m unsure. Both my dentist and my hygienist have said it would be unsuitable but I was hoping for a bridge. Thank you for getting in touch.

Hello and thank you for writing in. I can’t really say without seeing you but it may be a problem with your bone density. A dentist who specialises in implantology would be the ideal person to talk to, to confirm if this is the correct treatment or not. If you’d like to understand more about each treatment, you can find more information on dental implants, bridges and crowns through this website. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Dr Andrew Moore.
