3 Effective Dental Solutions for Replacing Missing Teeth

dentist checking smileThanks to advances in modern dentistry, there are now several dental options available for replacing missing teeth—including dentures, bridges, and implants. These dental solutions can help restore your smile and confidence.

Each of these dental solutions has pluses and minuses, so it’s important to discuss them with our dentist before making a decision.

Here’s what you need to know about each of the three main options:

Dentures — the most common choice for replacing missing teeth. Consisting of a set of artificial teeth, they’re usually made from acrylic or porcelain mounted on a gum-coloured plastic base. Dentures are usually removable for daily cleaning and maintenance, although they can be secured with special dental adhesives. The least expensive option, they may not be as comfortable or durable as other solutions.

Bridges — used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of a false tooth connected to two crowns, which are then secured in place on the adjacent healthy teeth. We also offer full arch replacement, using four implants to secure it. Unlike some clinics that use plastic teeth, we only work with high-end ceramic replacements.

These appliances can improve your bite and chewing efficiency, but require some minor modifications to the surrounding healthy teeth for proper fitting.

Implants — the most popular option for replacing missing teeth due to their natural-looking results and long-term durability. Implants consist of a titanium post with an artificial tooth on top, that’s rooted into the jawbone for stability.

While the most expensive option, this more permanent solution looks and feels as close to natural teeth as possible. You can eat, drink, talk as normal, and maintain the lifestyle you enjoy.
