How can I replace a missing tooth?
Missing teeth can be replaced in a number of ways. The first, and usually best, option is a dental implant. A dental implant looks, feels, and functions exactly like your other teeth and is the most successful and predictable way to replace any missing part of the body!
The second option is a bridge or a fixed partial denture. This is done by using the teeth next to the missing tooth as anchors to hold the missing tooth in place. The reason why, if we can, we prefer dental implants is a bridge causes the adjacent teeth to have dental treatment that they might otherwise might need.
The third and final option is a removable partial denture. The denture will be fabricated to exactly fit your gums and mouth to allow you to eat and smile again.
