If I choose to replace the missing tooth, what are my options?

If I choose to replace the missing tooth, what are my options?

  • Single implants – this would be suggested if only one tooth is missing.
  • Multiple or complex implants – your dental specialist might suggest procedures like multiple dental implants in one (like All-on-4 or All-on-6), or bone grafting if your jawbone needs to be built up before an implant procedure can be scheduled.
  • A fixed tooth-supported bridge
  • A removable denture
The best way to determine if you need dental implants is to seek professional advice. For more detailed information on these procedures, or to book a free consultation, contact Gentle Dental Care today.
