Closing a single gap in your smile can be as simple as having a dental bridge placed. Each dental bridge is composed of a number of artificial teeth (also known as pontics) that will act as your replacement teeth. The crowns at either end of the bridge will use your natural teeth for support. We may suggest a dental bridge in situations where only one tooth is missing; it can also be an excellent choice for replacing several teeth in a row.
Today’s dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking than ever, and they remain a great choice for individuals who need to have multiple teeth replaced simultaneously. When an entire arch of teeth is missing, we may suggest getting a full denture that rests directly on your gums. On the other hand, if only some of your teeth need to be replaced, you may benefit from getting a partial denture that fits neatly into the gaps and stays in place with the help of clasps.
Dental implants are able to do something that other forms of tooth replacement can’t: recreate the root structure of your missing teeth. As such, they can have all kinds of benefits for your oral health as well as your quality of life. On top of that, dental implants are highly versatile, able to replace any number of missing teeth with the right number of posts. And when it comes to longevity, it’s not unheard of for dental implants to last for decades.
