What Are My Options For Replacing A Missing Tooth?
When you are missing a tooth, the most natural, or the closest thing to natural to a natural tooth, would be a dental implant. There are many options to replace missing teeth. One would be a partial denture, which is removable, which can be kind of loose and is definitely harder to eat with.
A second option that’s normally offered is a bridge, which is also a pretty good option. It’s cemented in there permanently. It does make it a little bit easier to eat but can be hard to keep clean. The third option is an implant. The implant is easier to clean than a bridge would be. It’s also in there permanently. It doesn’t move around, so it definitely makes it a lot easier to eat.
