Yes he/she will: Removable dentures are for patients who are missing some or all of their teeth. Fixed partial dentures, also known as "crown and bridge", are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining teeth. Fixed bridges are more expensive than removable appliances but are more stable. Implant is a "root" device used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.

Yes: This is of course assuming you wish to replace these teeth. There are different options that may be available to you based on your condition. They may be a bridge, a removable appliance of some type, or possibly dental implants. Keep smiling !
