Q: My permanent, 6-unit bridge does not fit and has come off 2 times. After almost a year of treatment, the doctor doesn’t know what to do. He told me he’ll make a bridge a 3rd time and send it to the lab. Last week he told me I need an implant. If I say no to that, he may try to change my plan. I have already spent a lot and don’t know what to do.
A: Sounds like there is a problem with the fit of the new bridge? I would seek a 2nd opinion from a prosthodontist (specialist in bridges) and see what they can tell you about your dental issues and how to rectify them.
