Fixed options for missing teeth

When you have missing teeth, it can affect your self-esteem, your ability to chew properly, and even the alignment of your other teeth. Fortunately, there are several options available for replacing missing teeth. Here are some of the fixed options you might want to consider:

Dental Implants: Dental implants are the most popular option for replacing missing teeth. They are surgically implanted into the jawbone and are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that fuses with the bone over time. After the implant has integrated with the jawbone, a crown is attached to the implant, creating a natural-looking and functional tooth.

Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge is anchored to the adjacent teeth with dental crowns and spans the gap between them. Bridges can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and zirconia, and can be customised to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Bridges: This option is similar to a traditional dental bridge, but it is anchored to dental implants instead of adjacent teeth. This option is particularly useful if you have multiple missing teeth in a row.

All on 4 dental implants: This is a type of implant-supported denture that is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. It uses just four implants to support a full set of teeth, making it a more cost-effective and efficient option than traditional dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures: These dentures are similar to traditional dentures, but they are anchored to dental implants instead of resting on the gums. This option provides greater stability and can prevent bone loss in the jaw, which is common with traditional dentures.

If you have missing teeth, it’s important to talk to your dentist about the best option for your needs. A dentist can evaluate your oral health, discuss your options, and help you decide which treatment is right for you.
