There are a lot of people around you who have missing teeth; in fact, nearly all adults have lost at least one tooth before they turn 65. Adults lose teeth for many reasons.
You may lose a tooth due to an accident or an injury, such as when your child hits you in the face with a ball while you are playing catch. You might also lose a tooth because you had one removed, such as wisdom teeth. However, the most common reason adults lose teeth is due to diseases such as tooth decay or gum disease. If you have lost teeth, you may be wondering how to regain your smile. Here are some ways you can get your missing teeth replaced.
Single Tooth Replacement
If you have lost a single tooth, you may want to opt for a single-tooth implant. In dental implants, your missing tooth is replaced with a titanium screw and a prosthetic tooth. The prosthetic tooth looks identical to your other teeth. It can also do all of the things your natural teeth do.
What if you don't want implants? You can also replace a single tooth with a bridge.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
Not only can bridges be used to replace one tooth, but they can also be used to replace multiple teeth. A bridge can be fixed- which means it is cemented in, or it can be removable, which means you can take it out each evening. Bridges use the adjacent teeth to hold the prosthetic teeth in place. Bridges can be used to replace teeth in any area of your mouth. They are perfect when you have several missing teeth on one side of your mouth or missing teeth that are across from each other.
If you don't want bridges, implants can be used to replace multiple teeth or all of your teeth. You can also opt for partial dentures. No matter what you decide, there are restorative options that will give you your smile back.
