Are you concerned about your smile due to adult tooth loss? It can be difficult to feel confident, or even like yourself when you’re suffering from an incomplete smile. But modern dental prosthetics make it possible to not only complete your smile, but to do so beautifully and securely. By understanding the many options available, you can start to determine what is the best form of restorative treatment for you, so that you can hurry and get back to more important things than worrying about your smile, like enjoying your life.
Dental bridges – rely on the beauty and strength of porcelain crowns to help anchor a replacement tooth. The crowns will be carefully crafted to match your remaining teeth so that the resulting restoration is beautiful, seamless, and stable.
Dentures – full and partial dentures are also available to help complete a smile after tooth loss. Depending on how many teeth you have lost and where you may find this the best option. Dentures are also one of the most affordable options, making them ideal for many people, particularly those on a fixed income.
Dental implants – implants are the most stable and permanent option, as they are created using a titanium post, which must be surgically inserted into the jawline. This post is connected to a fake tooth, or pontic, using a connector. Your soft tissue will grow around the post, in a process called osseointegration, which helps to further stabilize the prosthetic.
Regardless of which prosthetic you choose, it is important to seek restorative treatment quickly after tooth loss. This can help prevent worsening problems, such as your remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment.
