Best and most cost-effective solution

by Tanya Taylor

I am a 36 year old woman and have a baby tooth that is rotten and crumbled off so only a rotten stump remains. It is where my eye tooth should be and my eye tooth is next to my front tooth. I would like it removed as I can't smile properly (which I hate) but am worried whether or not I can afford the treatment required.

My other teeth are starting to rot next to it. Any suggestions on the best and most cost-effective solution? I am in Sydney Australia. There is no pain so I'm figuring the roots are dead.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated and may even make me smile again.

Replacing Missing Teeth
by: Sharon B., RDH

Hi Tanya,

Dental implants are the most "natural" way to replace missing teeth. It sounds like you may be needing some extensive dental work, so it's good to know that implants can replace more than one tooth at a time.

Cost-wise, a more economic option would be to consider a bridge, which would place crowns on the broken-down teeth, and replace the tooth between them. This however, will only work if the other teeth are strong enough to hold the bridge. If not, you will want to look at implants or a removable partial denture.

Get those removed

Don't worry - get those removed ,get cheaply made resin retained bridges, save some money ang go for implants later.
