Dental Options for Replacing Missing Teeth


Posted on 5/15/2024 by Keizer Family Dental

Luckily, professional dental practitioners offer various options for replacing missing teeth, each tailored to address your unique dental needs. In this blog, we look into the most common dental solutions to help you make informed decisions.

Dental Implants


Dental implants are the recent trend in replacing missing teeth, offering a permanent solution without compromising function or aesthetics. These innovative prostheses involve surgery, where an oral surgeon places a titanium post into the jawbone to anchor the false tooth (crown). Since implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, they provide long-term stability and prevent bone loss in the jaw.

Dental Bridges


Another effective solution for missing teeth is dental bridges. These non-removable devices replace one or more missing teeth and comprise prosthetic teeth or pontics anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Dental professionals recommend bridges to restore chewing function, prevent adjacent teeth from shifting out of position, and improve aesthetics.

Dentures


Unlike bridges, dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace multiple missing teeth. These restorative devices come in two types: partial dentures and complete dentures. While dentures are a more affordable option, they may feel less natural than dental implants or bridges. However, advancements in dental-related materials and techniques have significantly improved their comfort and appearance.

Implant-Supported Dentures


These unique prosthetic devices combine dental implant stability with the affordability of dentures, offering a compromise solution. Dentures are supported permanently by implants surgically placed into the jawbone for enhanced stability. Implant-supported dentures provide better retention and chewing function than traditional dentures, making them suitable for individuals with significant tooth loss.

As mentioned, replacing missing teeth is vital for maintaining oral health and restoring confidence in the smile.
