Dental question about bridges
When I was 14 I was in a bad jet ski accident and really messed up my teeth.  My front 2 teeth were shoved completely into my gums and i lost my number 10 tooth.  I had braces on at the time which saved most of the teeth.  What they did was pull them down, put in a bunch of stitches and put the braces back on.  I was without a tooth for some time while it healed and then they put a bridge on for the #10 attached to the #11 tooth.  It has been 14 years since the accident and the bridge and everything was going fine.  We have been watching the resorption of the 2 upper middle teeth as they have been slowly dying.  Now i have pain in on of my front tooth and from the x-ray we can see that there is not much root left and is about dead.  What my dentist is recommending is to pull the 2 front teeth.  Take out the old bridge tooth and do a new bridge all the way across the 2 front teeth, so in essence a 5 unit bridge.  Is this what would be recommended, or would implants be the way to go?
