Are you in need of a tooth prosthetic? The answer should be yes if you’re missing any teeth. All missing teeth should always be replaced. This is because numerous risk factors exist with lost or missing teeth. The gaps left behind can become havens for bacteria and can even cause nearby or neighboring teeth to move around. Potential tooth prosthetics that are highly effective for replacing missing teeth include dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures.
If you are in need of dental implants, they are highly effective as they are installed directly into your jaw bone. However, your jaw bone must be strong enough to support them. Furthermore, dental implants are permanently attached and can provide a lifetime of support.
If your jawbone is not strong enough to support dental implants, a highly reliable alternative is dental bridges. Dental bridges are permanently anchored to nearby or neighboring teeth and can ensure that no food restrictions will be necessary.
If you are looking for a less permanent treatment, dentures are an effective option. Dentures can be removed on a daily basis and cleaned as needed. They can also be crafted for as little as a single tooth or for entire rows of teeth. Depending on your oral health care needs, your dentist can determine which treatment is best for you.
