When a temporary bridge falls out wny do the abutment teeth hurt so much?

The abutment teeth have been prepped (cut down and shaped) to receive the permanent bridge. They are sensitive because they are not supposed to be exposed to the environment as they are. Return to your dentist as soon as possible and have the temporary bridge re-cemented. This is important: The temporary bridge not only protects those preps, it also holds them in place until the permanent bridge is placed. If the teeth shift, even a little, because the temporary bridge is missing, the permanent bridge will not fit! New impressions will have to be taken and another bridge will have to be made.

What are opinions on which is better for a missing tooth an implant or a bridge?

An implant by far is the best way to go. A bridge involves the shaving down of good teeth to help abut the missing tooth. Bridges are o.k. but they are not as permanent as an implant. There is also alot of maintenance hygienically with the bridge as opposed to the implant. An implant is better, unless the adjacent teeth need crowns, a bridge can act as crowns for the adjacent teeth, while it replaces the missing tooth.
