Implants?

I had a crown fail and the root canal went bad. The crown fell out and I need to get it fixed. The dentist says another root canal will not work. I need to have the remains extracted.

They recommend an implanted tooth as both teeth on either side are OK and they say a bridge is a bad solution when the teeth aren't bad. The 'flipper' tooth is worse.

Anyone have any history with this kind of thing?

It sounds to me like you need a new dentist--or at least a second opinion...

I've gotten the same opinion from two dentists and an endodontist. I suppose I'll have to bite (no pun intended) the bullet and spring for the implant. Four large.

There goes the Climate Control Servo.
