The Fundamentals of Tooth Replacement

If you are missing teeth, dentures, dental implants, and dental bridges can restore your smile, your confidence, and the function you may have lost from missing teeth.

For a list of guidelines concerning tooth replacement treatments, consider the following:

– Dental implants are customized to fit each patient’s individual needs.
– You can replace complete rows of teeth with what are known as complete dentures, or you may need partial dentures to fill in gaps in your smile.
– If you need a dental bridge, you must have strong teeth available to hold the bridge in place. When a dental bridge is placed, it is secured by attaching it to the neighboring teeth.
– Since dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they will not work for everyone, especially those individuals who have a weakened bone structure in their jaw.
