Extraction and Bridge

Hello,
Recently, I broke a tooth and went to the dentist. It turns out that the tooth will need to be extracted (yikes!) and the two teeth around it will be prepped for a bridge.

my question is should I be worried that the crowns I have on my other teeth will come off when they take the mold of my mouth.

I’m already stressed out enough about the extraction, and hope I don’t have to worry about anything else.

thank you in advance.

Hi Trojanz12,

crowns will stay in place, they are actually so well cemented that you would have to destroy them to take them off, so no worries for the molds.

All the best wishes

There is plenty of material about how to deal with anxiety here on the page and you will find a lot of success stories too. Feel free to take a look around :)
