Dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants are three highly effective forms of tooth replacement treatment that seeks to improve your smile by filling in the voids in your mouth. If left untreated, the gaps can cause other teeth to move and be pockets for bacteria to thrive in. The benefits of filling in the gap with dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants include:
– Dental bridges are interesting types of replacements because they are not held in place with a paste as dentures are, or by bonding to the jawbone like implants do, but rather by building a bond between pre-existing teeth and hold fast through them.
– Dentures are fashioned to be a highly effective form of tooth replacement that can be taken out on a nightly basis to be cleaned and soaked in a denture washing solution. Dentures can be fashioned for a single tooth, called partial dentures, or a complete row of teeth, called complete dentures.
– Dental implants are tough tooth replacements often noted for the hold they can create in your mouth, which in many ways is greater than your natural teeth. Implants are directly bonding to your jawbone, and thanks to a process called osseointegration, the hold between the bone and implant will only grow harder over time, not weaker.
