What is the best way to replace a missing tooth?

Every patient is different, so it makes sense that what will work best for one patient might not work great for another. At GoldCity Dental Centre, our dentists believe that given the proper information, patients are empowered to make the best decision for their smiles.

While dental implants are widely considered the best way to replace a missing tooth, many patients opt for dental bridges or partial dentures. Cost, treatment times and personal preferences all play a role in the decision-making process.

Our dentists will evaluate your oral health and the underlying bone quality to determine if dental implants are an option that will work for you. They have many health benefits, such as bone preservation and longevity, which make them appealing.

For patients who have health complications and would prefer to avoid surgery, dental bridges fill the gap in the smile and provide a fixed solution to missing teeth.

In other cases, partial dentures or full dentures might prove to be the best choice.

After your exam, we will go over the benefits and limitations of each option, so that you can make an educated choice that works best for you.
