Gaps between the teeth can be a source of embarrassment, especially when you smile in public. It can also cause eating and chewing difficulties as well as causing the teeth to shift. Fortunately, various tooth replacement options provide a natural appearance and a full-functioning mouth. The best solution for replacing missing teeth will depend on your budget, the number of missing teeth, timeframe preferences, and oral needs.

Dental implants can replace a single, several, or all missing teeth. They are the only options that offer new tooth roots. During the procedure, small titanium posts are put into the jawbone. This provides a secure foundation for the crown or bridge. While dental implants may cost more than other options, they can last for many years with good care and maintenance. Also, since the dental implants are inserted into the jawbone rather than sitting on the gums, you will not experience slipping or teeth-shifting issues.
Dentures are an inexpensive way to replace several or all missing teeth. They do not require surgery or many dental appointments. The good thing about dentures is that they are easy to maintain. By removing, rinsing, brushing, and soaking them overnight, dentures can last for many years. Unfortunately, dentures can slip and move around the mouth. This will likely limit what you eat or cause sores in the mouth. For this reason, a dentist may suggest implant-supported dentures. By securing dentures with dental implants, you will laugh and eat confidently without worrying about them slipping.
A dental bridge is another non-surgical solution that replaces one or multiple teeth. This option is perfect for those with gaps between two healthy teeth. Bridges consist of artificial teeth and crowns to restore chewing, smile, and oral health. Do you want to determine the best tooth replacement solution for your missing teeth?
