What’s the Right Prostheses for My Smile?

Are you feeling disheartened ever since you lost a tooth, or even several? Adult tooth loss can come as the result of a number of things, such as trauma to the smile, deep tooth infections, or even gum disease. Fortunately, modern prosthetics make it possible to cope with tooth loss, and actually to get back to enjoying a complete smile, functionally and cosmetically. If you are ready to enjoy your smile again, following tooth loss or extraction, why not

talk to your prosthetic dentist about how a denture, dental bridge or implant could help!

Worried About or Unhappy with Your Dentures?

Partial and full dentures remain some of the most popular forms of restorative dentistry, likely because they can be completed quickly and they are affordable solutions for tooth loss. That said, some find that dentures can shift during chewing, creating insecurity or even discomfort. While temporary denture adhesives can help to temporarily hold dentures in place, many prefer the added stability that can be achieved with either a dental bridge or an implant.

Considered a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges rely on crowns, which are affixed to remaining teeth or secured through the use of implants, to help stabilize a replacement tooth or even a partial denture. The crowns help to keep the replacement tooth in place during chewing, without the need for adhesives, making a bridge a more secure and long-lasting solution for tooth loss.

What Makes Dental Implants Unique

That said, implants are considered the most permanent and stable way of completing the smile. That’s because only implants involve surgically inserting a piece that acts to mimic the role of a healthy tooth root, both in how it holds the replacement tooth firmly in place, and in how it provides nutrients to the jaw during chewing. If you want to enjoy great comfort and confidence, in many cases implants are considered the best option.
