Are you missing one or more of your permanent teeth? If so, it’s time to consider your tooth replacement options!
There are four different tooth replacement options in the dental world today that can temporarily or permanently replace your missing teeth. Your options include:
• Dental implants: Dental implants are reliable, stable, and successful solutions to replacing your permanent teeth. This is a great option if you are interested in having natural-looking as well as dependable results. The implant is planted into the jaw bone, giving you the stability you need to eat, talk, and smile with confidence.
• Fixed bridges: Fixed bridges are great options when it comes to permanently replacing one tooth or two or more of your consecutive missing teeth. The bridge fills the gap in your smile all while being anchored to the natural teeth that lie on both sides of the gap.
• Partial dentures: Partial dentures offer a removable solution to replacing your missing teeth. This appliance is generally used when you have two or more consecutive missing teeth. You will place the appliance within the gap of your mouth and clasp it to the teeth that lie next to it.
• Complete dentures: Complete dentures are great options for those who are missing all of their teeth. This appliance is removable and it gives you the full, complete, and functional smile you have missed. If you are interested in a permanent way to replace all of your teeth, you may want to consider implant-supported dentures.
