What tooth replacements are good for meWhen you have lost teeth this will mean that your lifestyle will change. This is why you need to replace the lost teeth to get your life back to normal. You need to talk to the dentist so that they will help you come up with the best treatment and replacement option for the missing tooth or teeth.

Dental implants


There is a treatment and replacement option that will replace all missing teeth in the mouth or an arch of missing teeth. The dental implant procedure involves surgical screwing of tiny titanium posts on the jawbone. The screws are made to act like natural teeth and a crown is placed on top to give the implanted functionality of natural teeth. These are replacement options that each person need to consider to get back to their normal life.

Dentures


These are teeth replacement options that are removable. They are made to look like natural teeth and are made to either be full dentures or partial dentures. The complete dentures are used when the whole jaw is missing teeth while partial dentures are put on an arch of missing teeth. The dentures will restore the functionality of natural teeth and they are made to help you speak, eat, and even do other functions that natural teeth do. Consider getting dentures if you need to replace all missing teeth due to factors like trauma and tooth decay.

Bridges


This is where the dental crown is secured to two teeth surrounding a missing tooth. The crowns are anchors and hold a gum-colored bridge where the new tooth is placed. This is a non-surgical procedure and replaces a missing tooth, the method is durable since the tooth is firm. Our dental professional will determine the best replacement option for you.
