Missing teeth or loss of teeth can result in a low self esteem.Other effects includes speech problems and chewing difficulty.Removable partial/complete dentures, implants, dental bridge are the solutions that can be considered.
A tooth-supported fixed bridge is the most common alternative to dental-implant supported restoration of a single tooth. It has several disadvantages when compared to dental implants. Placement of a tooth-supported bridge involves grinding away adjacent teeth, which will be attached to, and used to support, the bridge. Natural bone underneath a tooth-supported bridge is not stimulated as it is with dental implants, and may deteriorate over time, ultimately changing the appearance of your smile and face.
Removable partial dentures don't require grinding down adjacent teeth but are not nearly as stable or comfortable as dental implants and can affect speech and eating. This type of restoration is less expensive but doesn’t look as natural or function as well as an implant-supported ceramic crown. Removable partial dentures can bring with them issues regarding stability and comfort.
A resin-bonded bridge (also called Maryland Bridge) is sometimes considered for tooth replacement, especially to restore front teeth that don't endure the biting and chewing demands of back teeth. It has wings on each side to attach to healthy, adjacent teeth but usually doesn't involve preparing, or grinding down, other teeth. A resin-bonded bridge looks and functions better than a removable denture but isn't as strong as fixed bridgework and typically doesn’t function or last nearly as long as dental implants.
A removable complete denture, an appliance that sits on top of the gums where the missing teeth were, is a low-cost alternative to dental implant restoration. It can be uncomfortable, affect the ability to experience the full taste of food, cause sore gums, and shift and click in the mouth when one speaks, eats, smiles, yawns or coughs. The replacement costs of a complete denture can be significant over the long term. Similar to a partial denture, the natural bone underneath a complete denture may deteriorate over time changing the appearance of your smile and face. Before choosing this option, check with a dentist because the bone loss span a large area, causing a significant change in how you look. Dental implants are the best, longest-lasting options to restoring missing teeth because they look and feel like your natural teeth, and they will keep your jaw bone in its proper state so you look like yourself.
Single Tooth replacement with implant
There is no better, long-lasting option to restoring a missing tooth than a dental implant fitted with a crown.
Multiple Teeth Dental Implants
Replacing multiple teeth using dental implants with individual crowns or with an implant-supported fixed bridge gives your teeth a level of fit, feel and functionality that is not possible with other treatment options. The process is often completed over multiple visits.
