When it comes to tooth replacement Palm Beach Gardens, there are a lot of options. While your dental professional might debate between which option is best for you, one thing is for sure: if you have a missing tooth you need to get it replaced to avoid further damage to your mouth.
When it comes to replacing teeth, there are more options than just straightforward dental implants or not doing anything, to begin with. Dental bridges are less expensive, less evasive way to replace teeth without surgery or implanting something into your jawbone. Bridges are like a crown, except instead of covering one tooth they serve as an attachment that can bridge the gap between your natural teeth and the space left by the missing tooth. Bridges are similar to dentures, but only cover a small part of the mouth and are attached to other, healthier teeth instead of being attached to the gums.
While bridges, crowns, and dentures are a good way to replace teeth nothing is better than dental implants. Not only are implants the strongest option, but they are the most durable option too. The process of getting an implant can involve several visits to the dental office before actually getting one. Your dentist will need to map out the area getting the implant to make sure it can fit into the space. After your new tooth is made in a laboratory, you will get the implants surgically placed into your jawbone. After the recovery process, you will be left with a perfectly functional new false tooth.
