3 Ways to replace a missing tooth

Look, it happens. Sometimes we just lose a tooth, whether it is due to an accident or any other reason, it is a possible thing. However, no need to fret because we have several ways to replace your missing tooth. These options allow you to pick the one most suited for you so that you can be most comfortable in your tooth replacement process.

1. Dental Implant

An implant is a great solution for those wanting to get a replacement that acts the most like a normal, natural tooth during everyday activities. Brushing, chewing, and smiling are all easy-peasy just like before with a dental implant. The implant will replace the actual root where the missing tooth was, and the implant actually heals in the bone for several months. After this, a crown is cemented atop the abutment, and you’re done! One of the biggest advantages to a dental implant is that it can replace a missing tooth without having to alter any of your other teeth during the process.

2. Bridge

When the missing tooth is flanked by two other teeth, the bridge can be a really great option. This is a fixed option that cannot be removed, as it is cemented in the mouth. The method involves cutting down the two teeth on the sides of the missing tooth gap so that they may be connected. This option can replace or two missing teeth easily, and with enough support, it can help replace others as well if you have several missing teeth.

3. Removable Partial Denture

If you have several missing teeth or feel like you aren’t a good candidate for an implant, this can be a really great option to consider. It is a removable partial denture so therefore, it will be worn in the day, and then taken out at night. It is recommended to soak them in a denture cleanser at night so that you can have a clean denture ready for the next day’s wear.
