Edge 7 saddles problem

Edge 7, year 1990
Tried to change the strings, little black blocks that hold the strings on two saddles kept falling too deep in saddles
Removed them and found out that the bottoms of them are destroyed like on photo
Normal saddles' bottoms look like on photo
Can something be done about the problematic saddles or they are done and the only thing i could do is to get new saddles?

Re: Edge 7 saddles problem

Use the saddles for the high strings. Here the screw does not need to be so far out when changing strings and the screw still holds the block.
Works for me on an old guitar on the high e.
Then again, a green dot could be worth two new saddles.
