Several oral health risks are associated with missing teeth. Besides the obvious issue of causing a downturn in your smile and a sunken in facial structure, missing teeth can also make you look older. To help reverse this, any teeth that you do have that are missing will need to be replaced with a reliable tooth replacement. Highly effective options include dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
If you would like a permanent tooth replacement that is anchored onto nearby teeth, dental bridges are highly effective options. Not only do dental bridges fill in the gaps left behind, but they ensure that other nearby or neighboring teeth will no longer move or slide around. Because they’re permanent, no food restrictions will be needed as they will be held in place. Along the same vein, dental implants are permanent tooth prosthetics that can directly attach to your jawbone. Dental implants are highly desirable and can even last a lifetime of use. However, if you are looking for a temporary replacement that can easily be removed as needed, dentures can be used. Dentures can be crafted for as little as one tooth or can be designed for entire rows of teeth.
