Q. I’m missing four front teeth and hate having to wear a denture to replace these. It is embarrassing when it moves while I eat and i dread it falling out when I’m out. What are the alternatives to dentures?
A. A denture is not a great long term replacement for missing teeth. It will increase the likelihood that you will lose further teeth and end up with a bigger problem.
The alternatives include bridge work or implants, both of which will give you back fixed teeth in the mouth.
Implants are superior because they mimic the lost teeth, and stimulate the bone similar to a natural tooth.
