Transcription

Sometimes, as a result of long-standing decay or trauma to a tooth, it is necessary to have a tooth extracted, leaving an empty space in the mouth. It is important to discuss various options for the replacement of missing teeth. The available options are: dental implants; fixed bridges; and partial or removable dentures.

An implant is a prosthetic fixture, surgically placed into bone in the area of a missing tooth. Bridges are fixed restorations in the mouth. When a bridge is used, the artificial tooth is fused to the two crowns on either side of it, giving the appearance and feel of a natural tooth. Partial dentures and complete dentures are removable options for replacing missing teeth. They can be taken in and out of the mouth by the patient.
