Are there alternatives to dentures?

ANSWER

Yes, dental implants can be used to support cemented bridges, which fill the gap in your mouth with an artificial tooth attached to crowns that fit over your natural teeth on either side. Implants and bridges cost more than dentures, but they look and feel more natural.
