If you have any lost or missing teeth, they need to be replaced as soon as you can. Leaving empty gaps in your smile can cause the gums to loosen and force other teeth to shift and move out of their proper alignment. In addition, bacteria can hide in the gaps left behind. To protect your teeth, gums, and jaw from further damage, consider the following top tooth replacement therapies:

– Dentures are the most widely known tooth replacement therapy. They can come in small sets of a few teeth at a time, called partial dentures, or in complete sets called complete dentures. Dentures are easily placed and removable.

– Dental bridges are durable tooth replacement therapies that can be used in lieu of dental implants if your jawbone isn’t strong enough to hold. Instead, dental bridges are inserted into your mouth and latched onto neighboring teeth or implants for a permanent hold that can mimic the look and function of normal teeth.

– Dental implants are considered the most durable tooth replacement therapies. If your jawbone is strong enough, an implant can be mounted directly into the bone for a lasting hold that can function effectively for an entire lifetime. Dental implants are permanent but can be replaced if required.

All three therapies can be crafted individually for each patient and blended to match your other teeth.
