Missing teeth can have many negative effects on our daily lives. It can affect our confidence as well as the way we speak, talk, smile, eat, and even build relationships. It can also change the shapes of our faces.
Luckily for us, due to the many technological and medical advancements, there are now options available for replacing missing teeth.
Some of the more common options are listed below.
- Dental implants – dental implants are very common. They are durable, permanent, and feel very natural.
- Fixed bridges – fixed bridges can be used to fill a space where one or more teeth are missing. This usually takes more than one trip to the dentist, but they cost less than implants, feel natural, and can be brushed and flossed just like your normal teeth.
- Removable Partial Denture – this costs less than dental implants and fixed bridges. It is made to replace one or more missing teeth that may or may not be in line with each other. It can also be easily removed from the mouth for cleaning.
- Resin-Bonded Bridge – this option is only available for replacing front teeth, as it is delicate and cannot withstand a lot of chewing.
There are other options for replacing missing teeth such as tooth-supported fix bridge, removable complete dentures, and implant-supported fix bridges. It is up to you to choose the option that best suits your particular needs. We recommend that you research all your options and make a decision that is not only cost effective, but also provides the most advantages for your particular circumstance.
