Replacement Options for Two Lower Front Teeth

03/07/2007

Question:

Hello, I have two loose front lower teeth. I've been to two dentists, one said I need two false teeth and the other said I need to have a bridge. I need something more permanent, which option is best?

Answer:

Dental implants with crowns are the best option most of the time. However, treatment depends on the bone support of your remaining teeth as well as the way your teeth come together and your overall health history. Examination by a prosthodontist is recommended.
