If you need a tooth replacement services, should you choose dentures, dental implants, or dental bridges? Although all three choices are highly effective in providing an aesthetically pleasing look that can mimic the look and function of natural teeth, they do have their differences.
Dentures are removable. Not only can they be removed easily, but they can be replaced and inserted with little service necessary to the rest of your mouth. They are typically held in place by a strong bonding material.
Dental implants are not removable, but are extremely durable and can last for an entire lifetime. They are directly inserted into the jawbone for a lasting hold that won’t budge. They most effectively mimic the natural function of teeth with their ability to hold the tightest.
Dental bridges can be used when a patient’s jaw is not strong enough to hold implants. In that case, a dental bridge can be inserted into the void left by a missing tooth and connected directly to other teeth in their mouth. With the gap between teeth “bridged’ by the assistance of their teeth and the bridges, your mouth can return to its fullest once more.
