Outlining the Basics of Tooth Replacements

Posted by Merit Dental on Jan 27 2018, 04:50 AM

Are you aware of the importance of replacing any missing teeth? All missing teeth must be replaced as soon as possible to ensure a complete smile is yours once again. With an incomplete smile, you run the risk of increased tooth decay, gum destabilization a weakening jawbone, and tooth slippage. Thus, considered dentures, dental implants, or dental bridges for your oral health care prosthetic needs. Benefits are as follows:

– If you are looking for a highly effective tooth replacement to replace any lost or missing teeth with as little as one tooth or entire rows of teeth, consider the use of dentures. Dentures can be detached as needed for easy cleaning.

– If your jawbone is not strong enough to hold a dental implant, dental bridges can still be used because they are anchored to other nearby teeth. Once inserted into the missing gaps, they can help protect your smile and alleviate numerous risks associated with tooth loss, thus allowing you to once again enjoy the foods you love as there are zero food restrictions associated with dental bridges.

– A highly effective and customizable prosthetic treatment designed to improve your oral health is with dental implants. Dental implants are installed directly into your jawbone for a sturdy hold. If your jawbone is not strong enough to hold an implant, a bone grafting procedure will be required beforehand. Alternatively, dentures or dental bridges can be used as similar replacements.
