You might lose a tooth, but we can cross that "bridge" when we come to it!
An option for a missing tooth would be a dental bridge. A fixed bridge connects the gap between missing teeth and is durable enough for chewing. This process requires multiple trips to the dentists and involves placing the implant, customizing and putting the bridge in place.
A cheaper and less invasive option would be a resin-retained bridge. This type of bridge is commonly used on the front teeth. The bridge is attached onto the neighboring teeth which makes it less durable, as the front teeth don't endure as much pressure. Dental bridges are used to prevent missing teeth from causing surrounding teeth to shift, changing your bite, or making your jaw sore.
