Crowns, Bridges, Dentures, Implants
In my first visit to a new dentist he performed a series of x-rays. One x-ray showed that although at present I may not have discomfort, a crowned tooth which is supporting a removable bridge has decay under that crowned tooth. He states that he will need to remove the crown, clean the decay and hope there is no need for a root canal. That mean I will need to be without my frontal bridge for at least 7-10 days. Is there another ooption>
You should be able to have a temporary bridge in the meantime.
