There are two options that are used to replace lost teeth. You can either get a dental bridge or dental implants. When it comes to choosing which option is best for your mouth the team at Love Your Smile strongly supports dental implants.
Why are dental implants better? First things first, dental implants protect the rest of your teeth. When a dental bridge is installed it uses your natural teeth as support. In order to achieve this support, a lot of tooth structure has to be removed. On the other hand, dental implants don’t require any reduction, strain or pressure on your other teeth.
Secondly, with implants, you can better replace molar teeth. In the case of bridges, there needs to be adjacent teeth on both sides of a space. So if you have multiple missing back teeth, implants are a better option.
The great thing about dental implants is that they require little maintenance and are impervious to tooth decay. Bridge and crowns have to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. The cleaning process for cleaning implants is simple as they are very much like real teeth.
If you are interested in getting your missing teeth replaced, you should look into dental implants. They have outstanding benefits that will have you happy with your new smile. Make an appointment at Love Your Smile Dental Clinic today to see your options.
