Have you ever started to look for ways to replace any missing teeth you may have? The sooner you take care of this dilemma, the healthier your smile will be. Optimum oral health depends on a complete smile. This includes replacing any missing teeth with reliable and durable tooth prosthetics. Three highly reliable options include dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
If you are seeking out a temporary prosthetic that can be removed as needed, go with dentures. Dentures are designed to improve your smile by filling in gaps left behind by missing teeth. They can easily be cleaned by taking them out each night and soaking them in a denture cleaning solution.
For a more permanent treatment, choose dental bridges. Dental bridges also come with the added benefit of no food restrictions as they will hold solid in your mouth. This is because they are permanently anchored to nearby teeth for a solid hold.
For another permanent treatment similar to dental bridges, dental implants are installed directly into your jawbone. Because they’re supported by your jawbone, they can help strengthen any weaknesses that may have arisen due to tooth loss. The combination of your jawbone and your implant in tandem with each other will strengthen due to a process known as osseointegration.
