|2012-10-18||Jean||Root canal under bridge||10||10||10||No||Many thanks for your reply Dr. Kaufman. Due to the discomfort, I saw a maxillofacial dentist at Mass General Hospital yesterday. It is tooth #29. He said he could see no decay on the x-ray but recommended a root canal on that tooth in hopes of preserving the bridge at least for while. Due to my age, I have doubts about successful implants. That particular area of my mouth has been without teeth since I was 14 yrs old (they pulled our teeth without question in England during the war) and the bridge was placed about 12 years ago. Thes reat of my teeth are on good repair. Would this work?|
