Can bad teeth affect dental implants?
Unless there is a reason to not remove the broken tooth, I would strongly recommend having it extracted.
If left in place, there's potential for the broken tooth to cause periodontal problems for the implants.
I hope you found this information to be helpful,
Having a broken tooth in general can cause damage, severe pain, discomfort and has the potential to decay. There may be nerve damage in the tooth that you have not yet been discovered as well as potentially affecting other teeth. I strongly recommend going to your dentist before having the bridge placed over the broken tooth. Placing a bridge over the bridge can cause tooth decay, extreme discomfort, and pain.
