If you have missing teeth or are in process of losing teeth, it’s important to repair the damage as soon as possible. Although we cannot regrow missing adult teeth, we can find similarly effective replacement options. With the help of our qualified team at Sterling Dental and cutting-edge technology, tooth replacements can be done to mimic the natural style and color of your remaining teeth.

Two of the most popular forms of tooth replacement are dental bridges and removable partial or complete dentures. Here are some of the advantages to each:

Advantages of Bridges:

– Bridges can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Bridges are permanent fixtures in your mouth that can vastly improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth and even more so than dentures. They are not removable like dentures, which can tend to have the problem of falling out.

– Bridges can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Bridges also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

Advantages of Dentures:

– Dentures can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Dentures are removable fixtures that can improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth. Since they are removable, they do not need to attach to other natural teeth as dental bridges do.

– Dentures can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Dentures also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

The choice between getting fixed or removable dental prostheses does not have to be made alone. The dentists at Sterling Dental are here to help. To book a visit with Dr. Gregory J.
