Nightmare root canal response-3rd opinion
Thank you for taking time to reply to my question. I have decided to seek another opinion from an Oral Surgeon to discuss Extraction #31 and Implant #30 which is empty space that Bridge spans. This way I`m guaranteed to have no problems ever again with root canal disaster tooth #31. What is your opinion on Plan B? Thanks...
Placement of implants is certainly a treatment option. But be aware that implants are not foolproof either. They too have problems. Placement of implants is a surgical procedure and can have the same inherent risks that endodontic surgery may have. There are no guarantees when it comes to anything related to biology.
