What is the best option to replace my missing teeth? Today we’re going to discuss some of the options available to replace missing teeth.
Hi, Dr Warren here. I’m the Principal Dentist of Dental House Group. Over the years, one of the most common questions patient have is how to replace my missing teeth. So I’ve decided to make a video and share it with you.
And you might be like, “Yeah, I know. It’s like really expensive, right?” And you’re right. Implants are very expensive, but most of times, a dental implant is the best way to replace your missing tooth. But what a lot of people don’t know is that you don’t need one implant for every single missing tooth. A lot of times you can have as little as two implants or up to six implants in your jaw to replace all of your missing teeth.
Dental Bridge or Porcelain Bridge
Basically a bridge is whereby we put two porcelain crowns on your adjacent teeth and have a false porcelain tooth attached to it. It’s fixed so you can’t remove it. And aesthetically it looks just like a real tooth. So a dental bridge is a simple and effective way to replace a missing tooth.
Yes, we still use dentures, and it is cheaper than the other two options. However, we all hate it. Patients hate it because it can be bulky and uncomfortable, and most of them can’t stand the idea of taking your falsies out at night and put in a glass of water. Dentist hate it because they know there’s a high chance patients will hate it. But it is the most cost-effective way to replace missing teeth. A lot of times we actually use dentures as an interim solution while we plan for dental implants.
