Irreversible tooth loss does not mean your smile cannot be fixed. If you are missing any teeth, it is vital that you replace them as soon as possible. Missing teeth can cause your face to age by sinking in, and the voids left behind can become havens for bacterial growth and plaque buildup. Listed below are three treatments that can be used to effectively replace lost teeth:

– Dental bridges are designed to be extremely durable, aesthetically pleasing, and fully functional tooth replacements. They are held in place by directly linking and attaching to nearby teeth.

– Dental implants are designed to be extremely durable, aesthetically pleasing, and fully functional tooth replacements. They are directly installed into your jawbone that can actually strengthen over time. A single dental implant can withstand the rigors of a lifetime of wear and tear.

– Dentures are designed to be extremely durable, easily removable, aesthetically pleasing, and fully functional tooth replacements. Dentures use a bonding material that affixes them to your gums. However, they can be easily removed and cleaned on a nightly basis. Dentures are often used thanks to the added comfort of removing them.
