See Your Dentures Dentist for Missing Tooth Treatment Options

If you’re tired of dealing with the embarrassment and functional challenges of missing teeth, you have several options for replacement. Dental implants are usually considered the ultimate solution, but they’re not right for everyone. The cost can be overwhelming, and insurance policies don’t generally cover implants. Surgery may also present serious risks like infection, bleeding, or damage to your jaw. Partial or full dentures are a great alternative. They are more affordable, and they can restore both appearance and function. However, they do have a few disadvantages.

Replacing a Single Tooth

The most common non-implant solution for missing teeth is a tooth-supported fixed bridge. Placing this type of bridge requires altering the adjacent teeth that will support the structure. Plus, bone loss in the jaw may occur over time, and a tooth-supported bridge won’t last as long as an implant-supported one. These bridges also require more maintenance.
Removable partial dentures don’t require altering healthy teeth, but they do have several disadvantages. They’re less stable than implant-supported ceramic crowns, and they won’t look as natural. Resin-bonded bridges are sometimes used to restore front teeth. They have wings on each side to attach to healthy adjacent teeth, but no grinding or other preparation is required. Their appearance is superior to that of removable dentures, but they aren’t as durable as fixed bridges. A dentures dentist can determine which single-tooth restoration type is most appropriate for your needs.

Replacing Multiple Teeth or All of the Teeth

A dentures dentist can also create partial dentures to replace several teeth, but these offer less stability than both implants and implant-supported dentures. A partial denture may also be less comfortable, less attractive, and more likely to hinder speaking and eating.
A low-cost alternative for replacing all teeth is a set of full dentures; these sit on top of the gums where teeth once were. Some people find them uncomfortable, and they can shift, slide, or cause sore gums. Contact a dentures dentist to learn more about options to fit your lifestyle and meet your aesthetic needs.
