I would suggest that your next step would be to see a dentist to evaluate your denture.

Typically, a single tooth implant is the most successful, long-term treatment option. The lifespan of an implant is usually expected to be over 30 years. The crown on top of the implant may need to be replaced after 15+ years, but it is not uncommon for an implant crown to last 30+ years.
