Three Tooth Replacement Options To Consider When Replacing Missing Teeth

Posted on 12/19/2022 by Dr. Chad Rebhun
Three Tooth Replacement Options To Consider When Replacing Missing TeethTooth loss can occur at any age through accidents, extractions, or genetic conditions. A missing tooth can negatively affect your smile, facial features, and ability to chew and speak.

There are excellent options when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. Below are 3 such options.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular option for tooth replacement, whether replacing one tooth or several teeth. They provide a permanent solution for missing teeth. These implants feel real and require minimal professional maintenance. They can also last a very long time without needing to be replaced or repaired. Dental implants do not affect the adjacent teeth.

Removable Partial Dentures

If you are missing several teeth, this is a suitable option. They are custom-made from pink acrylic to match the color of your gum. They function like natural teeth and chew just as well. In case of any damage, they are also easy to repair. They are also not invasive. Depending on the location of the missing teeth and the type of denture, you may require a clasp that helps to keep it in place. The clasp may be noticeable when you speak or smile.

Removable Complete Dentures

These full dentures are the best option for missing teeth in an entire arch. They are readily available and can be found in almost any dentist's office. They are also quite invasive, and you will need to make several trips to the dentist. They are functional and aesthetic. However, they should not be worn 24 hours daily as they can cause discomfort.

Take Away

Depending on the number of missing teeth, choosing a method of tooth replacement varies. Getting your dentist to help you select the best option is a plan towards restoring your facial features and smile.
