I have a broken top molar #3 with what dentist informs me are cavities in both adjacent molars. My mouth is in sad shape. There is also a loose bridge on my four front teeth that dentist is afraid to attempt removal and re-cementing (money is an issue, and bridge will probably need to be replaced). I am worried. Dentist said that he cannot fill the cavities unless I have the broken molar extracted by an oral surgeon. Does this sound right? Will I be able to chew? I cannot afford to replace a missing tooth. Advice certainly appreciated. Thanks.
