What are my options for replacing missing teeth?
This depends on the number of teeth missing, where they are in your mouth, and the condition of your remaining teeth.
There are three main ways to replace missing teeth.
1. Removable false tooth (or teeth) – called a partial denture.
2. Fixed bridge. Usually used when there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.
3. Dental implants. This is where an artificial root is placed into the bone of the jaw and a crown or bridge placed on top of this.
