My friend had to get her back tooth on her right side pulled out today and it really bother's her. Can she get a replacement of a tooth? Of course, fake. lol. Thank you!
Can you get a fake tooth after your real one was pulled out?
Yes, she can.
There are 3 kinds of prosthesis. (A prosthesis medical term for a replacement part)
A removable partial denture - "partial"
A fixed partial denture - "bridge"
A temperory solution would be a removable partial denture made entirely of plastic - this is called a "flipper". I would suggest that you visit a prosthodontist near you or for a cheaper fix go to the student dental clinic in a dental school.
To find a Prosthodontist near you go to the website: www.prosthodontics.org
Reply:yes she can but it costs a lot. and sometimes they fall out again.
edit: @ least it did for my brother
Reply:Yes, they can make a bridge or you can have a tooth screwed into your gums...but that is a painful and expensive surgery and there is a chance of rejection.
Reply:There are two solutions to this problem, one is a bridge (fits like a set of dentures that will allow her the feeling of a tooth there. the other is quite a bit more expensive and painful and that is to have a "post" installed, wherenby the dentist drills into your jaw and screws in ametal post, later attaching the tooth that post.
Reply:she sure can... they have partials. my sister fell and knocked out one of her front teeth %26amp; she has a "fake" one to this day
WHEN A TOOTH IS EXTRACTED THERE ARE SEVERAL OPTIONS TO REPLACE IT.
THE BEST IS WITH AN IMPLANT. HERE THE LOWER JAWBONE HAS A SCREW DRILLED INTO IT TO BE FOLLOWED BY PUTTING ON A CROWN. THIS IS TIME CONSUMING AND EXPENSIVE.
THE OTHER WAY IS TO HAVE A FALSE TOOTH ATTACHED TO THE TEETH NEXT TO THE ONE PULLED. THIS IS CALLED A BRIDGE AND WHILE IT'S NOT INEXPENSIVE IT IS MUCH MORE REASONABLE THAN THE IMPLANT IN COST, AND CAN BE STARTED AND FINISHED IN JUST A FEW VISITS.
THERE ARE OTHER METHODS TO REPLACE THE MISSING TOOTH AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT PRICES AND MEANS TO DO THEM.
IT SHOULD BE DISCUSSED WITH THE DENTIST.
Reply:I busted a chunk out of one of my front teeth when I was younger and they grafted a partial piece onto it, It's still there %26amp; it looks like the rest of my teeth.
Reply:Yes, a bridge or an implant.
Reply:yeah she can get a bridge
