Yes and No: If the tooth is missing then there is no way anyone can fix that missing tooth. But if you want to replace that tooth, then yes and very common practice. Implant, bridge, or partial can be used to replace the missing tooth.

Specializes in Dentistry

Yes: Missing teeth are very common in adults and there are several options to replace them. If there is enough bone available, dental implants are the best way. If there are teeth in front of and behind the space, a bridge may be an option. Removable partial dentures are also a lower cost alternative to replace missing teeth. All of these options require the remaining teeth to be intact and healthy.
