Are you aware of the importance of having an entire set of teeth? In order to ensure your smile functions effectively, it is important to make sure all teeth are accounted for. If you’re missing any teeth, a tooth replacement treatment such as dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures will be needed. Here are the benefits of each:
Dentures – In order to make sure your teeth are functioning as intended, it is important to have a complete smile. One effective option to consider is dentures, which can replace missing teeth with a temporary prosthetic that can be removed as needed. Dentures are held in place with dental cement.
Dental implants – Dental implants replace missing or lost teeth with permanent prosthetics and are extremely durable and can last up to a lifetime of heavy use. Furthermore, implants are designed to attach directly to your jaw bone. However, a strong and durable jaw bone is required.
Dental bridges – If your jaw is not strong enough to support a dental implant, dental bridges can be used in their place. Dental bridges are part of tooth prosthetics that are linked or attached to neighboring teeth without having to break the surface of the gums.
