Loose bridge: I have a bridge with 4 teeth on it and is very loose.
I also have 4 crowns that have come off. I do not have any mouth pain.
I think they were not mounted properly and just need to be glued - mounted back on. I think the dentist that installed them was not very knowledgable, however, every dentist I have consulted wants to do the bridge over.
It just needs to be mounted back on. ... Visitor from GA
Crowns can be recemented but usually there is a reason they came off.
Many times the tooth will break inside the crown and the part that held the crown in place is no longer present. It's one of those cases where the dentist needs to have to look and see what the situation is.
If you have 4 crowns that all are off, there has to be a reason other than bad cement.
It is likely that the loose bridge has also been affected by whatever caused the crowns to become loose.
