Hi I have a loose dental bridge on four top front teeth. The bridge is long overdue for replacement with a full upper denture, has been recemented twice in 7 years, and is well over 20 years old. I will finally have dental insurance that covers some of the expense of dentures, but that does not commence until January 2024. The bridge is due to fall off again at any moment. The teeth are decayed (to say the least) and supported by metal posts. What are the chances and/or dangers of swallowing one or more posts during sleep (I do sleep a lot)? I am such a Nervous Nellie. Thanks.
