The Basics of Bridges, Implants, and Dentures

Posted .

When deciding which oral health replacement therapy is best for you, it is often based on your current smile’s condition, needs, and perks of each. The basics of bridges, implants, and dentures are listed as follows:

– Dentures are tailored to be a highly effective form of tooth replacement that can be removed on a nightly basis to be cleaned and soaked in a denture washing liquid. Dentures can be tailored for a single tooth, called partial dentures, or a complete row of teeth, called complete dentures.
– Dental bridges are captivating forms of replacements because they are not held in place with a paste as dentures are, or by connecting to the jawbone like implants are, but rather by building a bond between pre-existing teeth and hold fast through them.
– Dental implants are sturdy tooth replacements often noted for the hold they can create in your mouth, which is often considered stronger than your natural teeth. Implants are directly connected to your jawbone, and thanks to a process called osseointegration, the hold between the bone and implant will only grow sturdier over time, not weaker.
