There are many benefits to replacing a missing tooth.
If the gap is near the front of your mouth it will make your smile unattractive. A missing back tooth can affect your chewing and teeth adjacent to and opposite the gap can move and alter your bite, which can subsequently upset the function of your temporomandibular joints and chewing muscles.
With today’s biotechnological advances, an ideal way of replacing a tooth is with a titanium implant, a man made root. The implant is placed into bone, which over a short time bonds into the bone. The implant has an internal thread which can be used to support a porcelain tooth.
Placing an implant could be the best solution to replace a missing tooth. We will be pleased to talk about this and other options available to you.
Dentures and Bridges
There are other remedies when tooth replacement is required.
A removable denture is the simplest way to replace a missing tooth but it has the disadvantage of bulk and being removable. Other ways of replacing a tooth involve supporting a porcelain tooth by bonding or two crowns on either side of the gap. This involves preparation of the teeth on either side of the gap.
