  • If these teeth can be saved with root canal treatment and post and core then you can go for that as after post and core, the crown can be given. However if the teeth cannot be saved and have to be extracted then you are left with dental implant option and for other option of fixed dental bridge you need to have abutment tooth for support which is missing in your case. Another options is removable partial denture / flipper or cast metal partial denture. You have check with your general dentist. for more info on dentures you can read this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/article_options-available-for-dentures--265.aspx
