The Top Three Tooth Replacement Options

The Top Three Tooth Replacement Options

The 3 top tooth replacement options are dentures, dental implants, and dental bridges. Each replacement service offices a unique advantage that can improve your mouth. The only wrong decision would be to avoid a tooth replacement altogether, because empty voids in your mouth left by missing teeth can harbor dangerous bacteria and loosen gums, causing nearby teeth to rotate and slide.

If you are thinking about getting dentures, understand that they are not as durable as implants and bridges, and can fall out easier. However, they are removable, allowing for additional comfort while sleeping. Dentures can be crafted to suit your individual needs.

Dental implants are extremely effective replacement options that offer a durable hold that can last a lifetime. With dental implants, you can replace missing teeth with lifelike alternatives that are bonded directly to your jawbone for a sturdy hold that will last.

Dental bridges are an effective replacement option for individuals whose jaws are not strong enough to hold dental implants but are looking for a hold that is stronger and more permanent than what dentures can provide. Dental bridges are attached directly to other teeth, which helps prevent tooth slippage.
