Permanent Dental Implants for Replacing Missing Teeth
A dental implant is a great way to replace missing teeth. This option feels and acts the most like a natural tooth when chewing, brushing, or smiling. The dental implant replaces the actual root of the missing tooth and heals in the bone for several months. Your dentist would then place an abutment, to which a crown will be cemented.
A major advantage of dental implants is that there is no need to make any alteration to surrounding teeth. A dental implant is a great solution for a replacing one missing tooth, and even more implants can work replace several missing teeth. Dental implants look and feel natural and are almost impossible to discern from your other teeth.
Replacing Missing Teeth with Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is one option to replace missing teeth. A removable partial denture can move a little when speaking or eating, which can be uncomfortable. We recommend taking them out at night and soaking them in a dental cleaning solution. With a partial denture, you are not required to file down any teeth, and this option is the most economical.
