I have fractured one of my lateral incisors along the gum line, which I had root treatment for approximately 10 years ago. I visited my regular dentist who has advised me to wait until the tooth breaks off and then he will probably be able to fit a post crown providing the root is OK. I visited a private dentist for a second opinion, who has advised that I have the tooth extracted and consider having a Maryland bridge or an implant fitted. I am totally confused and don’t know what to do. I can’t afford an implant so what would be the best option, a post crown or a Maryland bridge? Your advice would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.
