There are many events where people end up losing their teeth. Cases like accidents, injury, medical conditions, and tooth decay happen to be the most common among all. In all these situations, we would recommend tooth replacement. Various restorative methods are used by our dentist to replace your missing teeth without compromising your appearance.
The role of a dental implant is to integrate your bone. A titanium-based implant is placed into your jaw bone, replacing the natural root of your teeth. This implant then supports a replacement with a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
Dental implants are considered an appropriate option if you are missing one or more teeth because of injury, periodontal disease, or any other dental health issues. The success rate of this tooth-replacement method is the highest. Implants are permanent and long-lasting and a good option for all adults.
Implant Crown and Bridges
Both implant crowns and implant bridges are considered to be implant-supported restorations. Our dentist uses them to restore your extracted or missing teeth. We would recommend you implant a crown to replace one missing tooth on the front or back of your mouth. An implant-supported bridge happens to be an appropriate option to replace several missing teeth.
The number of implants and the length of the bridge depends upon the missing teeth in your mouth. Even if you do not have any teeth left, we will perform a full mouth reconstruction using dental implant bridges or implant support dentures. Both the crown and the bridges function similarly to your natural teeth. They are a comfortable and durable restorative option.
Another method to restore your missing teeth is dentures. Dentures are simpler and have been around for many decades now. They have two types, complete and partial dentures. While complete dentures are suggested to people with all missing teeth, the latter makes a suitable choice for people with a few missing teeth.
Our dentist takes the impression of your mouth and sends them to the lab for the creation of a denture, after which it is clasped into its correct place using metal clasps. The false teeth so fixed into your mouth function like your natural teeth only. Removable dentures are considered to be the cheapest option for tooth replacement. You can remove your dentures during the night and sleep comfortably. Soak them in water so that they do not become misshapen or warped.
