There is several option to replace the missing teeth.
- Removable denture
- Dental implant
The removable denture, while it is the least expensive option, it can cause some discomfort because it needs to cover some part of the gum, palate or floor of mouth. Many patients prefer the fix option which is the bridge or dental implant. The advantage of the implant over the bridge is that the bridge will need the adjacent teeth to hold the missing teeth which require to cut the teeth smaller while the implant will not need to affect or compromise the other teeth at all.
However, the option that is chosen to replace missing teeth depends on many factors including your concerns, finances, and goals for treatment. A frank discussion between yourself, your dentist, and with a dental specialist, will help to determine which treatment is the right one for you.
