Do you know what the benefits of tooth replacement therapy are? If you have any lost or missing teeth or are scheduled for a tooth extraction in the near future, it is important to have a replacement set in your mouth as soon as you can. Leaving an empty void in your mouth can cause several oral health issues including bacteria buildup and potential movement and slippage of other teeth.
Replacing your missing teeth doesn’t have to be an arduous task, but there are a few options you need to consider:
– Dental implants are astounding artificial tooth replacements that are permanent and are drilled directly into the jawbone and are often regarded as the most effective treatment method for replacing teeth. Dental implants are extremely durable and can be manufactured to an almost identical look and functionality of any teeth that have been lost.
– Dental bridges are astounding artificial tooth replacements that are permanent and 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 onto nearby teeth and implants and are an excellent tooth replacement procedure if your jaw is not thick enough to support dental implants.
– Dentures are astounding artificial tooth replacements that are both removable and temporary and can help replace the lost functionality of teeth. Dentures come be manufactured as either 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.
