Oral Health Care Procedures: Tooth Replacement Therapy

Posted .

If you would like to replace any teeth you have missing, there are three highly recommended procedures to consider. This includes dentures, implants, and bridges.
But how do you know which form of tooth replacement will work best for you? The answer will depend on your age, jaw strength, desires, and genetics.

– Dental Implants: Dental implants are designed to be permanent tooth replacements that are installed directly and deep into your jawbone. They provide a durable hold that will strengthen your jaw and restore any speech or eating skills you may have lost when your teeth were lost.

– Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are designed to be permanent tooth replacements that are installed by linking to neighboring teeth with a secure connection to hold the bridge in place. Bridges are ideal for people wishing for a durable hold but lack the jaw strength for dental implants.

– Dentures: Dentures are designed to be removable tooth replacements that are installed via a bonding cement for a daily hold. Every night, dentures can be easily removed and stored in a denture-cleaning solution. Dentures are an outstanding tooth replacement treatment for a few teeth all the way up to an entire mouth makeover.
