Do you or someone you know have a missing tooth or teeth that you/they are conscious of? There are many options available to replace missing teeth, each with advantages and disadvantages. It is important to visit your dentist for a consultation to help decide an option that is best suited for you.
Generally, there are three options:
- Denture or “plates”– this is a removable appliance made to replace teeth and is the least expensive option
- Bridge – this is a fixed option (cannot be removed) where the gap is replaced with a false tooth connected on both sides to the neighbouring teeth
- Implant – this is a fixed option where usually a titanium screw is placed in the bone and then a false tooth is attached on top. This is the most expensive option
