If you are missing one or more teeth, it is important to replace them for a variety of oral health reasons. Missing teeth create a more favorable environment for gum disease, issues with the bite, bone loss, and more. In today’s blog, our Riverside, CA dental office, discusses our prosthodontic solutions to replace teeth and keep your oral health optimized.
Bridges for a Natural Smile
Bridges are a common and reliable way to replace missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth attached to crowns that are secured to the surrounding healthy teeth. These bridges blend well with natural teeth, giving a comfortable and attractive appearance. Bridges help restore the ability to chew and speak properly and boost confidence by giving a complete smile. Bridges require special attention to be cleaned effectively to prevent gum disease or decay. At your checkups, we examine your entire mouth and provide tools to help you properly care for your restorations.
Dentures: A Trusted Solution
Dentures have been a popular choice for replacing missing teeth for a long time. They are removable appliances made from strong materials that fit over the gums. Dentures can replace a few missing teeth or a full set. They improve speech, the ability to chew, and support the face’s structure. This helps people to feel more confident and socialize comfortably. At your dental checkups, we will clean or adjust your dentures as needed and examine the oral tissues to proactively address any concerns.
Implants: The Best Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are a highly successful and long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. They are surgically placed in the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Implants support individual crowns or even full sets of teeth. They look and function like natural teeth, prevent bone loss, and preserve facial structure. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, providing a beautiful smile and improved overall oral health. At your professional cleanings, we have special tools to clean your implants and prevent gum disease from occurring around them. Just like natural teeth, they can be susceptible to infection, so it is important to maintain preventative checkups.
