What are my options for replacing multiple missing teeth?

Options for replacing multiple teeth start with a removable denture.

Although this is the most cost effective option (usually around $1,500 for a denture), some people don't end up wearing it because it's not actually giving them much function.

An alternative to a denture is a bridge.

Generally it's not advisable to replace multiple teeth with a bridge because it starts putting so much load on the teeth next to the bridge that you risk fracturing the next teeth.

But it could be something to consider with your dentist, look at how your bite comes together, but generally it's not something that's done.
