Let’s see some commonly used teeth replacement treatments:

Dental Bridges –

Fixed bridge or dental bridge is an option to replace one’s missing tooth/teeth. Of course, it’s the sufficiency of adjacent teeth structure that would mainly be required to support such artificial teeth.

This restorative teeth prosthesis will also require to scratch down adjoining teeth. This may trigger indirect (some damaging) effects on teeth enamels too. In this treatment, everything goes well except the part when the preparation for support is performed. In this procedure, there may also go something very exposing for adjoining teeth resulting in future need again for replacement if supportive portion is harmed.

Bridges can last for the periods of approximately 10-12 years. They may then require another spell of replacement too.

Dentures –

Dentures are the removable teeth restorative prostheses. They can be either partial or full dentures. A person with one or several or all teeth missing can go for them. Their placement will usually depend upon the support that other teeth in jaws can provide to them as well as the support by sufficient gum and jawbones. They can be moved when not in used.

Advantages of dental restorative surgeries

The reason why one should go with filling the space (in place of lost teeth) is mainly to avoid any further damage to adjacent teeth from bending down due to an empty space created therein. Bone resorption is also a process that can be taken care well enough. in that, the loss of teeth may lead to bone shrinkage time by time resulting in jawbone loss.

Therefore, these artificial teeth are simply going to support neighboring teeth as well as bones.

Dental Implants –

When we consider restoring our missing tooth or teeth with dental implants, it’s rather a wise decision.

But, how come?

Let’s see:

Dental implants are like a permanent dental solution to lost tooth. Whether you have single, more than one or all teeth gone, they can prove to be the best treatment.

With them once fixed, one can improve chewing, speaking and smiling. Their confidence boosts up with enhanced oral appearance too!

Unlike dental bridges where there may be some damages to nearby teeth structure, the dental implants are safe for these teeth not requiring them to get pealed off. Similarly, where dentures are more likely to slip off while wearing or using, dental implants are more fixed. There are many other advantages of dental implants as well.
