Go for implants, a bridge is old money technology and will damage your teeth either side and will cost nearly as much and fuck up. Dentures are the cheapest, but after two weeks you will book implants.

This is pretty much what everyone is telling me - and after reading up on it where i’ll probably end up. My brother in law has just spent an obscene amount of money on 4 or 5 of the things but he looked like he’d done several rounds with mike tyson afterwards (looks ok now though) so i’m willing to live with the hole until it pisses me off too much.


You will have a temp denture while the work is done if it’s front teeth. I had 3 done last year and it cost £6,100 at the time (small discount for up front payment). Lots of places now do ‘easy payment’ options.

Really happy with mine tbh. I will have to have another some time in the next 5 years.

It’s actually a lot less painful and evasive than root filling.

  1. Have them done in the UK by somebody who does them all the time.
  2. It took about six months to complete mine, as two were done then the third done later (growth stuff was needed as I have double roots and deep roots).
  3. You will need to have them checked at the time you get your other teeth seen too.
  4. It works better if the tooth root is still there.


Yeah there are cheap foreign ones but i don’t fancy waking up with tits just because the guy was doing boobs that day.
I only need one (at the moment) it’s a back molar( missing lower wisdom, cracked but soldiering on molar, missing molar to be replaced, other teeth round the front) and the whole tooth including root was removed.
I’m looking at prices and they seem to vary wildly from the just over a grand up to 3k+ so i’m guessing it’ll be a 2k job and as you say there are interest free options.
The thing is I can think of a lot better things to spend the money on and just chew on the other side for now.


The more you leave it the worse it will get.

  1. The teeth either side of the gap tend to fail after time.
  2. The gum / bone shrinks if there is no tooth there.

Don’t wait too long.

I used Kiss Dental in Altrincham, I can’t recommend them highly enough.


Bit of a bumper day out in London for me. Ophthalmologist at 11, just had an MRI and got an appointment with my main consultant and his team at 4.15. Best find a café…
