Hello again! In my previous post, I have discussed what dental implants are, and how they can be placed in your mouth. Rather than choosing bridges or dentures, I think dental implants can provide a more effective and long lasting solution for your missing teeth and also to help retain your dentures so they become more stable during function (specially lower dentures).So today I will discuss the different ways dental implants could be utilised.
The replacement of missing teeth maintains the appearance as well as the functional integrity of the mouth. Missing teeth could be replaced by removable dentures, fixed bridges or dental implants.
Removable dentures are not well tolerated by the majority of people as they move during function, as well as being uncomfortable in many other ways.
Fixed bridges require grinding down of neighbouring teeth; which may be healthy ; to provide retention for the bridgework.
The gold standard for replacement of missing teeth in the modern world is dental implants. Whether you have one missing tooth or several; dental implants provide a firm foundation for the attachment of fixed teeth which look and feel like natural teeth.
