Ideally, if you lose a tooth you try to replace it right away. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. Sometimes, your budget or your life just doesn’t have room in it for replacing your teeth. The problem is that when it is a more favorable fi nancial situation, it may in some ways be too late for a simple dental implant to be placed. This can be due to teeth crowding into the space left by the missing tooth, making it too tight for the dental implant, or the deterioration of the jawbone in this area because of no tooth being present. Does this mean that you are no longer a candidate to have your tooth or teeth replaced? Thankfully, this is not the case and we still have options for you.
