One of the most important things you can do for your teeth is to make sure that any missing teeth are replaced. Missing teeth can destroy your smile in many ways, including its looks and ability to function properly. If you should ever end up with a gap in your smile, fill the empty void with a tooth replacement. Various tooth-replacement options include:
– Dentures: this dental replacement is a removable prosthetic designed to replace several missing teeth or an entire dental arch. Dentures are extremely durable and can be easily removed as needed, which makes for easy and effective cleaning.
– Dental implants: these dental restorations are designed to be permanent. They fit in your mouth where missing tooth once sat. Dental implants are inserted directly into your jaw bone for a durable hold that can drastically improve your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile.
– Dental bridge: if your jaw bone is not strong enough to hold dental implants, a dental bridge is a highly effective alternative. Dental bridges are permanently fixed in place by attaching to the teeth on either side of your gap.
