Q.

BRIDGE<br>BRIDGE

Hi Doc

I have a bridge in the back of my mouth. What are the options of having some sort of permanent surgery to replace this metal bridge with teeth only that cannot be removed?

Hi Wanda

The process you talking about is called implants.
It is a common procedure nowadays but whether you are suited for the surgery will depend on many factors (level of bone etc).
The first step would be to see a dentist/oral surgeon to assess whether you are a candidate for implants. Thereafter costs,number of implants, time frame can be discussed.
