Q.

Give me advice plz

Hi doc

Ek het my boonste 4 voortande laat trek en wil graag 'n bridge kry. Is dit 'n wyse besluit aangesien ek gehoor het dat jou hoektande nie goeie anker tande is nie??

Andersins oorweeg ek implants, Is daar medical aids wat implants ten volle dek?

Thanks

FA

the canine teeth are excelent anchors for a bridge- do not be discouraged.
there are medical aids which cover implants but you will have to check with your broker.
implants are a good option if you are a suitable candidate however the costs are many mor times than that of bridge.
discuss all your options with your dentist. there are pros and cons to each of the treamtent options.
good luck
