Should I get a bridge for missing tooth or dental implant?

Q. Hi i have lost my front tooth root has been removed and have had one dentist suggest a bridge attached to two already 10 year old crowned teeth and another suggested an implant as he felt the two crowned teeth could weaken and therefore i could end up with m ore problems what is your opi nion ?,
A. Many thanks for your email, the option i favour would be to leave the crowned teeth alone and have a single tooth dental implant, although the treatment may be more costly it is a tooth in its own right its does not rely upon any other teeth and will be a much stronger unit that a bridge. hope this is helpful.
