I went to my dentist for some consultation on having fixed bridge but hesitant to undergo the procedure on the thing that: wont it destroy my other healthy teeth that will be used as a support since it needs to be trimmed down?Also suggested was to undergo root canal.Is it painful?Pls enlighten me.Thank you.
Root canal treatment generally yields minimal post-op pain if perfomed cautiously.Replacement of missing tooth or teeth can be achieved by fixed bridge, removable partial denture or implant. Consultation with your restorative dentist to provide you detailed information is advised.
