    What are the other options to replace a tooth?

    Hey. I had a mild injury a week ago while riding my bike. I was riding through a muddy road and had a skid. I fell on my face and lost one of my teeth. Since it is my front teeth, I have to do something about it. A friend of mine had a similar accident and he had undergone a dental implants procedure in Houston ( http://www.shorttermbraces.com/services/implant/ ). What are the other options to replace a tooth? It should look more natural since it is my front tooth.

    Bridge or implant would be your only options. The implant is the better choice.

    If the break isn't too severe they might be able to do a crown.

    A tooth implant is going to look and feel exactly like the one you lost.
    I had an implant over ten years ago after a root split. I couldn't even
    point to the exact tooth it was. Several years ago I had another after
    a cyst was removed from my jaw. I just take care of them like the
    others-regular brushing and flossing. I'd never consider a bridge.

    Good luck.
