What Dental Solutions Are Best For Replacing Teeth?
Posted on 3/6/2023 by Dr. Brandon Cooley
Dental implants are a permanent and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They involve the placement of a small titanium screw into the jawbone, which acts as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth.
Once the implant has fused to the jawbone, a crown (artificial tooth) is placed on top of it, giving you a natural-looking and fully functional tooth. Dental implants are an excellent option for people with healthy gums and sufficient bone density in the jaw, as they require a solid foundation to support the implant.
Dentures And Bridges Can Also Be Used To Replace Missing Teeth
A bridge is a dental appliance that fills the gap left by a missing tooth (or teeth) by attaching artificial teeth to the adjacent teeth. Bridges are typically made of porcelain or ceramic and are a more affordable than dental implants. However, they are not as durable and may need to be replaced after a few years. Bridges are a good option for people with healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth and do not want to undergo the surgical procedure required for dental implants.
Dentures are a removable appliance that can replace a complete set of missing teeth or a partial set of missing teeth. They are made of acrylic resin or porcelain and are designed to fit snugly over the gums. Dentures are a more economical than dental implants or bridges, but they require more maintenance and may not be as comfortable or stable as other options.
