A single missing tooth could be replaced with either a removable partial denture, adhesive bridge or a conventional bridge. Each one of the above has it's own flaws. Modern dentistry today offers a simple solution with single implant placement to replace that missing tooth.
The main disadvantage with this method is that it is removable and may come away unexpectedly. It can cause further gum disease or tooth decay if not maintained correctly.
A conventional bridge replaces the missing tooth by fixing crowns on adjacent teeth on either side of the missing tooth gap. The biggest disadvantage of this method is healthy teeth have to be unnecessarily filed and made into stumps to fix the three unit bridge.
These are secured by bonding to the adjacent teeth on either side and are effective at replacing a missing tooth. Unfortunately the retention is not effective and can fall off often. They don't last indefinitely.
