Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

It is a terrible idea to use fractured teeth as abutments. The prognosis of the bridge is very poor in such a case.

Yes, it would be best to get these teeth extracted.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.

Good Luck !
