What are the options to replace missing teeth?

The simplest option is removable partial dentures, which are held in place by hooks and stabilized by a plastic or metallic structure that fits over the palate or under the tongue. The patient can remove them from their mouth and place them back themselves.

The next option is a bridge, which involves trimming the tops of the neighboring teeth so they can be fitted with porcelain crowns that will hold between them the replacement tooth.

The third option consists of dental implants, which involve placing a titanium post that will serve as an artificial root that will support a porcelain crown.
