Many years ago I had a long bridge made for my upper left side. Unfortunately the back tooth broke so I had to have most of the bright removed. He did leave two teeth and made a crown to anchor it. So in reality I now have 4 upper teeth, (2 front & 2 right side) one crown and two bridge left side. But the bridge is very loose and needs to be removed. My dentist doesn’t seem to realise that the crown and bridge are made as one. So when he removes those I shall be left with just 4 front teeth..horror! I’m low income so know I can have a standard denture made, but shall probably have a ‘flexible’ one for £600. But is it really necessary to wait 2 weeks for the healing and a further 3 weeks for the denture to be in situ? Is there no quicker route? Also, how will the denture be anchored? Will I have clips showing on my front teeth?
Thanks for any advice you can give me. I am procrastinating about starting this work even though I have a very sore gum where the bridge needs to be removed.
