A bridge or an implant
I've always had bad teeth. On my lower left side I have 3 filled teeth, where the nerves are gonne and two of them had massive fillings. On my no 6, a had a fracture of one of my natural sides of the tooth and it's now gonne. My dentist says that it's a very large filling now that cannot support itself (maybe I have short roots too) and the remaining has to go. So I'll be left with an open space there !!!
The only solutions she suggested are either a bridge or an implant ! To build a bridge would require to sacrifice a healthy tooth which will then hold the other 3 that are already filled. So a massive bridge of 4 teeth :(. I don't want to saccrfice a healthy tooth as I have only few left and I don't want a massive bridge in my mouth bcs it will make my gum worse.
I also have very bad gums that are often red and usually bleed when I wash them or floss. The other option is to have an implant but I'm scared to take a chance on it, in case anything might go wrong and have permanent consequences. What can you suggest to me please ?
