Is it appropriate to replace missing tooth #6 with a Pontic if the 2 teeth right next to it (behind it) are dental implants? Tooth 6 need extration due to damage caused by a dentist many yesrs ago. My dentist rec pontic attached to the 2 implants behond #6, but I am wary as I feel like that canine tooth will just be hanging there as it will not be attached to a tooth on either side, but two teeth from the same side... I have seen this method used before for a molar, but not for a canine... I need to know if this is ok before I consent to extraction.
