Replacing Missing Teeth
Have you ever dreamed of the perfect smile? Are you missing teeth? Are you worried about the effects that missing teeth may be having on your career or life? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be interested in visiting a nearest dentist in Calgary SE and replacing your teeth with one of several permanent or removable options. Missing teeth can have a drastic effect on your life and career. It has been through several studies that those with better teeth are more likely to get a job over someone with worse teeth and the same qualifications. It has also been suggested that a set of teeth is one of the biggest factors in creating a positive first impression with someone. Whether you want to land an important job or you want to find that important someone, replacing your missing teeth could be the thing that seals the deal. With several options to choose from, replacing teeth has never been so easy and effective.
Depending on your needs and smile goals, your experienced SE Calgary dentist will find a tooth replacement option that is perfect for you. You may be a candidate for only one of them or all of them depending on the circumstances.
Here are 3 of the most popular options for replacing missing teeth:
Fixed and removable bridges:
Teeth can be replaced with a fixed bridge if there are teeth in the area that are adequate in number and are healthy and strong enough to support the artificial teeth. The process of placing a bridge includes: preparing or properly sizing the adjacent teeth to facilitate the required space and then fabricating the bridge to fit comfortably in the open space. A prosthetic tooth (or teeth) can be suspended between adjacent teeth to provide a functional and cosmetic replacement for the missing tooth or teeth. A removable bridge performs in the same way except for the added benefit of being able to remove it when you want.
Removable partial or full dentures can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth in your upper and/or lower jaw. Partial dentures rely on the support of other teeth in that jaw and on mechanical support from the remaining ridge of gum and underlying bone. Upper jaw full dentures also may be assisted by suction between the denture and the underlying gum of your palate.
A traditional dental implant includes a titanium peg placed in your jaw to simulate the tooth root. An artificial crown is then placed over top of the peg to simulate the tooth. Traditional dental implants are a popular option for those affected by significant bone deterioration and loss. Traditional dental implants provide both function and fashion to the affected area.
