When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a crown.
This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth. More information on Dental Implants.
A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge.
It is a stable solution with good aesthetics and function that is fairly easy to install.
However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge. More information on tooth-supported bridge.
This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth.
It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort.
A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can’t create the same aesthetic result as a ceramic crown.
Meanwhile, the benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren’t affected.
It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap. More information on dentures.
In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative.
The advantage is, having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want.
It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance. More information on bridge on implants.
This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use.
Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge, this denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look.
It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts.
However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared. More information on dentures.
When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution .
Before dental implants, there were no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth.
Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high aesthetic solution. More information on Dental Implants.
A denture that is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth.
This alternative has no real advantages – except for its low price and easy installation.
The disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor aesthetics, affected speech, and sore gums from denture movement.
Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste. More information on dentures.
