Could a post be inserted in the tooth?

My bridge sheared off my teeth at the gum line. I would like to know if I have to get an implant or could a post be inserted in the tooth? There are upper side teeth(eye tooth) with root canals on both. thank you.

Bridge Coming Off
by: Sharon B., RDH

Hi Anthony,

Most likely if your bridge sheered off at the gumline, these two teeth with root canals had decay around the margin of the bridge. If that is the case, then the teeth can't support the bridge again. Posts are used sometimes on a tooth that needs to have a crown but it is a last ditch effort to save the tooth. For a bridge that is meant to support a lot of pressure, posts are likely not an option. Your best option in this case would be to have the broken teeth extracted, and implants placed in that space.

From my limited experience, I feel that you should not do something like this without the consent of a well-experienced doctor. A third opinion would be something that I would recommend on hearing about it.
