If you have lost one or more teeth, there are many possible tooth replacement solutions for you. Tooth replacement options can include dentures, bridges and dental implants. Replacing your missing teeth will tremendously enhance your quality of life. Consult an experienced dentist about which option is the best for you.
Dental implants are a highly sought tooth replacement option for missing teeth. This type of tooth restoration technique involves surgically implanting a titanium post into your jaw bone that acts as a tooth root. Once the post is in place, a dental prosthesis will then be placed on top. This procedure allows the dental prosthesis to function and appear as natural teeth do. For those missing multiple teeth, this procedure can be conducted in tandem with other tooth replacement techniques depending on your individual needs.

Dental implants are the premier tooth replacement option because this procedure completely restores all oral functions that were compromised as a result of tooth loss. This tooth replacement option is permanent and secure. With proper care, your dental implant will last the rest of your life.
However, dental implants are not for everyone. Like all surgeries, you must be in good health to undergo this tooth replacement option. Depending on your individual circumstances, other tooth replacement procedures could be a more desirable option.
If you have suffered extreme tooth loss, dentures are probably the best choice for you. Dentures allow for complete restoration of severe tooth loss. There are two main types of dentures, complete dentures and overdentures.
Complete dentures are for situations in which all teeth are missing. These dentures are designed to fit over the gums to restore oral functionality. Your dentist will fit you for dentures that will suit your gums exactly.
Overdentures are dentures that can be removed at will and often can be combined with dental implant technology for a lasting smile. This is a good option for those missing multiple teeth, but still have many teeth left. This option allows you to feel confident and promotes oral health.
If you would like more information about tooth replacement options for missing teeth, talk with your dentist about whether dental implants, bridges, or dentures may be options for you.
