The Post Which Holds My Bridge Has Broken And Cemented In Place. Can This Post Be Replaced At The Same Location?

Q.
Hi Dr Patel. I have 3 teeth bridged in the front – top row. This bridge usually rest on 2 posts which were made by grinding the 1st and 3rd teeth. Last year the 1st post was found to be broken and dentist’s observation was that it does not project out of the bone. My dentist has temporarily fixed it with cement but I fear that it could become loose at any time.
Can this broken post be replaced by a new post implanted at the broken tooth/post location? If yes then please let me know the cost and also time duration for the treatment.

Thank you for your suggestion and also for your time.

Kind regards.

Hello and thank you for writing in. The post can be removed and a new one can be placed if the rest of the root is healthy if not, the best option would likely be dental implants. I would need to see you in person to determine whether this was the case or not. If you require further information in the meantime, you can read about dental implants through this website. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Dr Riten Patel.
