I have a small upper bridge on left side - eye tooth is false
and then an anchor tooth, a false tooth/crown
and then original molar
. The front
portion has become loose and wiggles. The dentist
is hoping to be able to pop it out and recement. Is this a normal thing to happen, is it easy to remove a loose bridge? He did not see any indication of decay
under the bridge. Worrying about this process of removing a loose bridge without breaking or harming any teeth.
JA: Have you noticed any swelling in the gums? When was your last visit to the dentist?
Customer: No swelling, but bad taste in my mouth. I saw the dentist yesterday for my 6 month cleaning
and I said something to the hygienist who then in turn did my x-rays for the dentist to review. He checked with his own tools/floss
and was concerned with the movement and mentioned removal of it to recement in place, but was not entirely sure what he would do.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?
Customer: Not that I am aware of - I filled out a complete medical history form to update them.
