The Best Way to Replace Missing Teeth
Dental implants are considered the best and most natural way to replace missing teeth. An implant takes the place of the root root of the tooth, and a crown is made to replace the portion above the tooth above the gums. If you area candidate, it is the most natural way to replace missing teeth.
As the name implies, a dental bridge replaces a missing tooth by anchoring to the teeth on either side of the space. If the anchor teeth have been weakened by large fillings, this could be a great option for you. A bridge can protect these teeth and replace the missing teeth at the same time. Unfortunately, however, they are difficult to clean around
Sometimes there is either not enough bone to support an implant, or not a tooth on either side of the space to anchor a bridge to. In these situations a removable partial denture or a complete denture can make sense. They can be difficult to get used to, and cosmetically may show clasps in your smile, but can greatly increase your ability to eat when the other options are not practical.
