What options are available in artificial teeth?
Q: I got my incisor operated recently. The doctor has taken it out completely. He has advised me to put an artificial tooth at that place. What are the materials available for artificial tooth? Which material is good? What are the treatments available for such problems?
A:You have three options. 1. Implant in the place of tooth - costs about Rs. 25,000 per tooth. 2. Fixed partial denture - cap on adjoining teeth and missing tooth as bridge - costs about Rs. 10,000. 3. Removable denture - costs about Rs. 500.
