Pat, sorry not to reply right away but I've been away a few days! The dentist said I had two options: 1) an implant with a filling in the tooth next to it that got the cavity. or 2) a regular bridge with the teeth on each side crowned and a "falsie" in the middle.
I would have liked to get the implant, but my insurance covered more of the regular bridge, so guess which I got? Yep, the bridge!
