Options for missing teeth
Partial dentures - Often only covering where a single tooth used to be, the partial denture will provide a removable replacement for missing teeth. A partial denture will be clipped into your dental arch and will rest upon the palette of your mouth. This alternative to tooth loss can cost around $300-$5,000.
Complete dentures - A complete denture is required when ALL teeth are missing, and this is why they cost more - up to $10,000
Tooth implants - The procedure of having a dental implant will involve invasive surgery in which metal posts are fused to your jaw bone. This requires drilling into the jaw bone to attach the metal posts, then mounting a false tooth on top of the screw. The cost can be up to $1,000 per tooth.
Fixed Bridge - A dental bridge will cover the gap where your tooth once was by receiving support from your surrounding natural teeth. Instead of the fake tooth being inserted through your gum, one or more of your surrounding teeth will have to host a dental cost which will then attach to your bridged tooth. To apply a crown, the dentist will need to sand down the natural tooth to enable it to host a crown.
