Do you need to replace a lost or missing tooth? If so, here are some excellent options to choose from:
– Dentures: Dentures come in two forms. Partial dentures, which are used to replace a few missing teeth at a time, and complete dentures, which can be crafted to replace entire rows of teeth. Dentures are easily removable, but still effective enough to replicate the functionality of natural teeth to a certain degree.
– Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are drilled directly into the jawbone. Dental implants are often regarded as the most effective treatment method for replacing teeth, given that they are extremely durable and can be molded to an almost identical look and functionality of any teeth that have been lost. Although dental implants are permanent, they can be replaced if necessary.
– Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are a tooth replacement treatment that can fill the gap left behind by missing teeth, with various materials, often consisting of porcelain, to mimic the look and functionality of normal teeth. Bridges are held in place by latching on to nearby teeth and implants. Dental bridges are an excellent tooth replacement procedure if your jaw is not strong enough to support dental implants.
