But if the infection is confirmed then rct should be done. The bridge can be gently removed and re fitted after doing rct.
Root canal treatment is not mandatory for dental bridge, but yes in some scenarios we need to do intentional root canal treatment, if too much tooth reduction has to be done.
Now, as per your case the abutment tooth is already affected. Then, under such circumstances we need to do RCT before a dental bridge is planned.
