There are several replacement options available today. A removable appliance is your least expensive option. A implant is the most expensive way to replace the missing tooth. You implant a titanium root and make a crown on top of it.

Your dentist can replace the lost tooth with a spacer. Alternatively, you can opt for a more expensive, but more permanent and realistic, dental implant. It depends on how much money you want to spend.

You can replace the tooth with one of three options a bridge(this is cemented in place), a partial (this is removable) or an implant(this requires surgery and crown work). Your dentist can help you decide which option is best for you. It depends on several factors including the health of surrounding teeth and cost.
