I had my first premolar extracted last week, and I was given 4 options…a 1 tooth denture type thing, a bridge with crowns placed on the neighboring 2 teeth, an implant, or just leave the hole. I really can’t afford the bridge or the implant, and the denture thing sounds annoying. I don’t care about the gap in my teeth, but I don’t want my other teeth to shift. Is there such a thing as a spacer for adults following extractions? My 7 year old has a spacer to prevent his teeth from shifting while waiting for the adult tooth to come in, and really it just seems like an easy/inexpensive option that wasn’t offered to me as an adult.
