I had my top 2 front teeth crowned and also a bridge of 4 teeth fitted 25 years ago. I have had little trouble during this time. I recently experienced pain and following a X-ray my dentist has found that the bone in which my crown post is inserted is crumbling away. He says the options are, dental surgery where he lifts the gum, cleans and repairs and does root canal treatment. (its 50/50 whether this will work at all) or the removal of the teeth to be replaced with a denture. He can perform both of these options, but also said I could have implants elsewhere, but these will cost many thousands of pounds. I am 54 and I don’t really want a denture. I am so confused. What do you think is the best option?
