hen deciding between a bridge or an implant to address a broken front tooth and the adjacent tooth with a cavity, it's best to consult with your dentist. They will assess your specific situation and provide personalized recommendations. However, here are some general considerations for bridges and implants: Bridge: A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that uses the adjacent teeth as support for the replacement tooth (pontic). It involves preparing the adjacent teeth by removing a portion of their enamel to accommodate the bridge. Bridges are a suitable option if the adjacent teeth have healthy tooth structure and are strong enough to support the restoration. They can provide an aesthetic and functional solution for replacing the broken tooth and filling the gap. Implant: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a stable foundation for a crown (replacement tooth) to be attached. Implants are a great option if the adjacent teeth are healthy, and the bone structure in the area is sufficient to support the implant. They offer a long-term solution that closely mimics the look and function of a natural tooth. Ultimately, the decision between a bridge and an implant depends on several factors, including the health of the adjacent teeth, the condition of the jawbone, your oral health, and your personal preferences. Your dentist will evaluate these factors and provide you with a recommendation that is best suited for your specific case. It is important to schedule an appointment with your dentist to discuss your options in detail and receive a proper examination. They will be able to assess your oral health, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each option, and help you make an informed decision.

Hi there are many ways of conserving the tooth even if it's broken, but we can only tell if it's possible after taking an xray. A root canal treatment followed by a post and core buildup can be done. The crown/cap would then rest on top of this. If the tooth is extensively broken then extraction followed by an implant is advisable. As for the adjacent tooth, if it's just a cavity a filling would do.
Next Steps
Kindly visit a dentist. Get an assessment and treatment plan.

Implant is better. But to be sure I will need a photograph and xray of your mouth and teeth respectively. Anyway, is the tooth broken from middle or completely gone? If it's half broken then it can be fixed. About your tooth with cavity, if you never had any pain in that tooth, a simple cosmetic filling could fix it.

If some structure is visible, you can still go for root canal treatment followed by restructuring of the crown part as many options are available. If the tooth is non-salvageable which only a dentist can tell after clinical as well as radiographic examination then implant is a better option. For the cavity on adjacent tooth restorative options would work.

visit a nearby dentist for clinical checkup

Hi Share snap of the tooth for better suggestions. @It depends on the remaining teeth left. 1)If it's completely gone , extraction followed by implants will be the wise option. 2)If half of the tooth structure is left then RCT followed by fiber post and crown will be a good option.
