Replacement Options for a Lost Tooth


Whether through decay, gum disease or by accident, losing a tooth is never desired. Even if the tooth is in an almost unnoticeable position, it is inadvisable to simply ignore the problem.

The gap left by the missing tooth can cause surrounding teeth to shift position. The gap may also lead to a loss of bone density in the jaw.

Fortunately, modern dentistry offers a range of solutions to the problem of missing teeth and your dentist can advise you on the best options available. The most common solutions are:

Dental Implant. With a success rate of more than 95%, a dental implant fuses with the jawbone and is topped with a crown that is colour-matched to the surrounding teeth.

Partial Denture. This is an artificial tooth that is attached to a metal framework. These can be permanent or removable, cost less than implants but need replacing every few years.

Dental Bridge. The bridge uses neighbouring teeth to support an artificial tooth and is ideal when replacing a single tooth.

Depending on the location there may be several replacement options available and your dentist can help to determine the ideal solution in your particular case.
