You may know by now that if you have any missing teeth, it is important to have them replaced as soon as possible. However, are you aware of which prosthetic is best for you? There are several different prosthetics on the market including dentures, dental bridges and dental implants. Deciding which one is best for you often depends on your oral health care needs. Visit your dentist to determine which one will be best for you.

Are you familiar with the benefits that dentures can provide? Dentures are often considered one of the most highly recognizable forms of prosthetics because they have been around for ages. They can be crafted for as little as one tooth or for multiple rows of teeth. However, dentures do have one drawback, and that is that they are temporary and not permanently attached to your mouth.

If you want a permanent treatment, seek out dental implants or dental bridges. Dental implants are extremely effective but do require a strong jawbone as they are permanently attached to it. If you have a weak jawbone, it may be wise to consider a dental bridge treatment which can function in the same way and provide a permanent prosthetic which is anchored directly to nearby teeth to function in the same way and provide a permanent prosthetic which is anchored directly to nearby teeth.
