Tooth replacement options

If you are missing a tooth, it is possible to replace this, even if the tooth has been missing for a long time.

To replace a missing tooth with something which is fixed in the mouth,  you would use either a dental implant or a fixed bridge.

A dental implant is a tooth replacement. It consists of three parts; an artificial tooth root which is the titanium implant, the connector which connects the entrance to the outside surface and the crown which is the biting part of the tooth.

A bridge can be one of two types, either a fixed bridge – which involves crowning the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.

Or an adhesive bridge which is held in place by being bonded to the adjacent tooth.
