My recommendation is to get a second opinion if you question the doctor's recommendation. There may be a technique that another dentist can try to allow you to keep the brigde longer. Be aware, however, if the bridge stays loose you could possibly run into other problems. A new cavity could grow under the bridge on one of the abutment teeth that supports it, which could cause big problems. If one of the abutment teeth gets in a bind from the rotation of the brigde, you could possibly fracture one of the teeth that supports the bridge.

Find a dentist that you feel comfortable with and start an emergency fund to put money back for the future treatment.
