I would REALLY appreciate a professional opinion on this issue.

I am missing my second premolar on the top right, and my first and second molars on the bottom right.

My dentist has suggested doing two bridges, foregoing the root canal and crowning of the supporting teeth. Is this possible? Will there be any ramifications in so doing?

My other concern is - in the event I have to do the root canal before obtaining the bridges, why then would I perform root canal on four perfectly healthy teeth in order to accommodate the bridge??

Please advise me accordingly.

Thanks in advance.
