If you have missing teeth, there are several excellent options for replacing your teeth:
Dental implants – This is usually the best option for replacing missing teeth. A root form is implanted in your jaw, and a crown is placed over it. This looks and acts just like a natural tooth, so it is the most comfortable choice. And, unlike a bridge, the teeth on either side don’t have to be ground down for crowns.
A dental bridge – This option is the traditional way to replace a single tooth. If the teeth on either side of the missing tooth have large fillings or need crowns, this can be the simplest way.
Complete dentures and removable partial dentures – These are more economical ways to replace missing teeth. A complete denture, however, can be made much more stable if it is anchored by a dental implant.
