Although tooth loss can be a catastrophic event in your life, it doesn’t have to negatively affect you for the rest of your life. Many options are available to bring your smile back and return the youthful look to your face once more. Some of the best tooth replacement therapies in the dental industry include implants, bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants are crafted specifically for each patient’s needs and are guaranteed for an extremely durable hold that can easily last a lifetime. The one drawback to dental implants is that once they are connected directly to the jawbone, your jaw must be strong enough to support them.
Dental bridges are crafted to fill any gaps within your teeth and replace lost teeth. Dental implants work by bonding directly to nearby teeth. Dental bridges are an ideal choice for individuals whose jaw strength is not strong enough to support dental implants. As with all tooth replacement services, bridges help fill the gap left behind by missing teeth that can cause your gums to loosen their grip on other nearby teeth.
Dentures are crafted to function as natural teeth would, but are still removable if a situation calls for it. The advantage of removable dentures is that you can give your gums a chance to rest at night when you remove your dentures. Dentures can be used to replace a tooth or a few all the way up to entire rows if necessary.
