If you have any lost or missing teeth, they need to be replaced as soon as possible. Leaving empty gaps in your smile can cause the gums to loosen and force other teeth to shift and move out of their proper alignment, as well as cause bone loss. In addition, bacteria can hide in the gaps, left behind and stir up infections. To protect your teeth, gums, and jaw from further damage, please consider the following top tooth replacement therapies:
Dentures are the most well-known form of tooth replacement and are very popular with people who need entire rows of teeth replaced. However, dentures can also be used if you only need a few teeth replaced. Dentures are removable and offer natural-looking replacements that are relatively comfortable.
Bridges are tooth replacements used to wire existing teeth to artificial ones that can fill in gaps left by missing teeth, for a permanent and durable hold. However, if your jaw is strong enough, another form of tooth replacement that can be used is a dental implant. Implants are connected directly to your jawbone for a durable hold that can last a lifetime. Implants can also re-strengthen your jawbone and give your back all the functionality of a full smile with no food restrictions at all.
