A missing tooth can be replaced via 5 options depending on the medical and financial needs of the patient. The options are an implant, an implant supported bridge, a tooth supported bridge, a partial denture, or a flipper. An implant is the best option for replacing a single missing tooth as a post is inserted into the jaw and then fitted with a ceramic crown abutment, leading to a replacement tooth that retains full functionality. An implant supported bridge may be an option when multiple teeth need to be replaced. Implants are placed on either side of the affected area. A multiple tooth abutment, or bridge, is then placed over the affected area and aesthetics and functionality is restored. A tooth supported bridge is an option when two strong teeth are adjacent to the missing tooth. The healthy teeth are drilled down and a multiple teeth abutment is placed over the healthy teeth, providing an aesthetic and relatively functional replacement. A partial denture is an option when multiple teeth are missing but some healthy teeth still remain. A partial denture is crafted to match gum and teeth color and is fitted to replace the missing teeth. Finally, a flipper is an option for those looking to restore the aesthetic of their missin tooth but are not needing restored function. A removable retainer holding a replacement tooth is fitted to the remaining teeth, restoring the aestethic of your smile.
