Partial: The cheapest way to replace a missing tooth is not the best or the most long lasting way. Concider this when making your choice. A removable partial is the least expensive tooth replacement. If your budget only allows the least costly way you can change this in the future if your financial situation changes. Meanwhile keep the rest of yuor teeth healthy for the future.

Removable teeth: Partial dentures will be less expensive due to lower material costs, time, and expertise involved. Dental implants with a fixed prosthesis will best mimic your own teeth. Discuss all options and associated fees with your dentist so that you can make an informed decision.

Also it is important to know that everybody is a good candidate for implants. Health problems and bone conditions are 2 if the most important issues.

Partials: Out of all the options you mentioned partial dentures or removable teeth are the cheapest due to lower material and much less time to do. See your dentist to discuss all the available options that apply to your particular case.

What's required: As with most things in life, the lower the costs of materials, the less the time needed, and the least training and expertise required result in the lowest final cost of a product or service. Not replacing teeth is your worst option, followed by a removable partial bridge, a permanent bridge and the best option- implanted supported teeth. Understand each option, pros and cons and then decide.
