Dental implants are the best option for replacing your missing teeth. In fact, dental implants are the latest dental replacements dentistry can offer. However, even though they function and feel just like natural teeth and do not suffer from the weaknesses of the other options, they are expensive and are not affordable by everyone. Although, as per my thinking dental implants are still quite cost effective in view of the quality of life they permit. If, for some reason you cannot be given implants, or you do not want to choose implants, I am discussing some of the other teeth replacement options that you can consider:
- Tooth supported bridge: The replacement tooth (pontic) is supported on crowns placed on healthy teeth on either side.
- Removable partial dentures: The dentures sit on the gum, and take support by suction or adhesive. Grinding down of the adjacent teeth is not required.
- Maryland bridges or resin-bonded bridges are used where too much chewing stress is not expected, ie, in restoring a lost front tooth.
- Replacing multiple teeth: If you want to replace just one or two teeth a fixed bridge is possible as alternative to implants.
- Replacing all teeth: The alternative to implants is the complete removable denture (conventional denture).
