As you may already know, it is extremely unhealthy to leave the gaps in your smile untreated. Overtime, many additional problems may occur, like tooth misalignments and improper tooth movements, and you will also have a difficult time eating, talking, and smiling, if you don’t already. This is why you should finally consider your tooth replacement options, which are:
1. Partial dentures: A partial denture is a great appliance that is beneficial for those who are missing several consecutive teeth. The appliance is removable and it fills the gap in your smile, making everyday tasks much easier. When wearing this appliance, you will place it over your gums and clasp it to the remaining natural teeth that lie on both sides.
2. Complete dentures: A complete denture is a beneficial appliance for those who are missing all of their teeth. The appliance will replace your gummy smile with beautiful, straight, and strong teeth. When wearing the appliance, you will place the denture over your gums and suction it to the roof of your mouth.
3. Dental bridges: A dental bridge is like a partial denture, but instead of the appliance being removable, it offers permanent results by being cemented to the surrounding two teeth.
4. Dental implants: A dental implant is a strong product that is imbedded into your jaw bone, which will keep your replacement tooth sturdy and strong. This is a great option for those who want fixed results as well as a tooth that appears and feels natural.
