Most likely, you will have to replace the entire bridge. However, there is another less optimal solution. For your 6-unit bridge, how many abutment do you have? If you have 4 abutments (2 on each side), and the broken one is the last of the two abutments, then you might be able to section it off. This will leave you with a 5-unit bridge with 2 abutments on one side and 1 abutment on the other. Unfortunately, sectioning a bridge will make the bridge weaker since you now only have 1 abutment instead of 2 abutments on one side. In addition, you will now have an empty space where the broken tooth was.
Have a bridge 6 teeth on it 1 of the post is broken, can this be fixed?
