Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible is the most appropriate way to prevent the remaining teeth tilting or moving into the empty space.
Your dentist will advise you about your options for replacing missing teeth. Dentures, a dental bridge or implants can be used. The best option depends on the number of missing teeth and the condition of your gums and supporting bone.
A fixed dental bridge can be used to replace missing teeth and is usually fitted to a tooth or teeth adjacent to the gap.
When several teeth are missing, removable complete or partial dentures can maintain your bite and restore your smile.
When your gums and supporting bone are healthy, dental implants are a long-lasting option to replace missing teeth. Implants are titanium inserts that replace the root of the tooth and are permanently secured to the supporting bone. They are then restored with a crown or denture that is attached to the titanium insert.
