Options For Replacing Missing Teeth
- Dental Implants
Today, Dental Implants are the most common dental procedure people consider for replacing missing teeth. It is reliable and gives the feel of natural teeth. It is a permanent solution whether you want to replace single or multiple teeth. It can last longer if taken care of appropriately.
- Fixed Bridge
A fixed bridge fills the gap between one or more teeth. However, this process involves several trips to your dentist. It involves placing implants, customizing the bridge, and fixing it in the place of the missing teeth. It looks, feels, and even functions as natural teeth and need not be removed while cleaning. It is very cost-effective compared to Dental Implants.
- Tooth-Supported Bridge
In a tooth-supported Bridge, the dentist uses your existing teeth that support the placement of the bridge. It does not involve the placement of a tooth in the mouth. Then, a crown is cemented next to the missing tooth, and the procedure is completed.
- Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is used for replacing a few missing teeth. While removable partial dentures have great chewing and aesthetic appeal, they are less durable than implants. However, they are less expensive options for tooth replacement and can be removed easily while cleaning and sleeping. It can also become uncomfortable if worn after an extended time.
Temporary partial dentures that can be flipped in and out of their position are known as Flipper. It does not affect any surrounding teeth and also does not include any metal clasps.
- Complete Partial Dentures
Complete partial Dentures require a dental procedure for replacing the entire set of a missing tooth. It is invasive, aesthetic, and functional. It is uncomfortable if worn for more than 24 hours a day.
These many options can replace your missing tooth. Out of them, the most effective one is dental implants since they are completely durable and are a permanent solution.
