When was the last time you went out to eat with your family and truly enjoyed the experience without worrying about being able to chew comfortably and confidently? If you have suffered from adult tooth loss then you likely know all too well how frustrating and embarrassing missing teeth can be. Yet ill-fitting dental prostheses can be just as frustrating, since they can shift during chewing. Fortunately, modern dental prostheses make it possible to address tooth loss with great-looking and comfortable results. So, are you ready to see how a prostheses could help truly complete and restore your smile?
Is a Dental Bridge the Best Option for You?
One great way to complete the smile is to choose a dental bridge. Bridges can be used to replace a single lost tooth or several, yet they offer more stability than unattached dentures, because they can be attached to existing teeth through the use of dental crowns that are connected to a replacement tooth, such as a partial denture or a pontic, a fake tooth.
Have You Considered a Dental Implant?
Another option is a dental implant. Implants can provide even more stability, because they involve surgically placing a mimic tooth root. Once placed in the jaw this mimic root provides a permanent base for a replacement tooth to be attached to, and it also helps to nourish the jaw through chewing, making implants the most permanent and most comprehensive way to cope with tooth loss.
