In a time when looking good on the outside contributes a lot to feeling nice about yourself on the inside, it can be very important to always have a beautiful set of teeth. A nice set of pearly whites is not only easy on everyone’s eyes, but they also give you a lot of confidence and make it easier for you to eat.
Having a complete set of teeth is also beneficial for your health. Multiple dental studies have shown that the vacant spaces in your mouth caused by missing teeth can make your teeth even more susceptible to decay and your gums more vulnerable to diseases. Furthermore, missing teeth can also cause your other teeth to shift and alter your overall facial structure.
Implant Supported Dental Bridge
The dental bridge is the most common solution to missing teeth. As the name suggests, dental bridges “bridge” the gaps caused by missing teeth by filling them with artificial teeth. The replacement teeth are natural-looking and are supported by dental implant. The dental bridge is a great solution for people who have damaged or missing teeth that are looking to make their smiles whole again.
Dental bridges supported by implants also help prevent your jawbone tissue from deteriorating. Traditional dentures can cause your gums and bones to recede, leaving you with a distorted and unappealing smile. In contrast, dental bridges supported by implants fuse with your jaw bone tissue, keeping the natural structure of your face healthy and intact.
Multiple Individual Implants
The gaps in your smile may not be in all one place. In this case individual implants and crowns might be a the perfect solution to close the gaps and restore your dental health.
Implant Supported Dentures
If a bridge or individual implant and crown aren’t enough to complete your smile, you may want to consider implant supported dentures. This approach can still provide you with the benefits of implants while replacing all your teeth with a new and beautiful set of natural looking teeth.
