Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement
The most preferred option for tooth replacement is a dental implant. This is a permanent solution to your missing tooth or teeth. You can get one, several, or even have an implant bridge fill in a space where you have several missing teeth in a row.
In cases where you have total or near-total tooth loss, you can benefit from mini implant dentures. These are dentures you can snap in and out by placing them onto implant posts. This is an incredibly popular solution for those who have been considering dentures.
Mini dental implants have made their way to TikTok with a woman who calls herself Princess Glitterhead. Her real name is Alicia. She lost her teeth after suffering dental issues during her pregnancy. She became viral when she shared her tooth loss story and showed off her gorgeous mini dental implants.
Dental bridges are used when you have a few missing teeth in a row. It is like a bit of denture that you can wear to close up your gap and give you a full smile again. Many people have been opting for the more permanent dental bridge for their tooth replacement. That would be an implant bridge.
This works by putting two posts into the jawbone to hold the bridge piece. Not only do people like that this is more secure than something removable, but it also looks and feels better.
When you have an implant done to hold a dental bridge, it can help you prevent your jawbone from deteriorating. It can also protect against facial deformities. The pressure applied to the jawbone from implants promotes bone growth and stability.
Dentures for Tooth Replacement
Dentures can be done in two ways. First is the traditional way. You have denture pieces made that lay on your gums with adhesive strips or special denture glue. They are the more affordable option. They work just fine for a lot of people. There is a more preferred option for tooth replacement, though.
Mini implant dentures are the preferred option. As mentioned above, the denture piece is removable but snaps in and out of implant posts. Like the implant bridges, these protect the jawbone from deterioration and the face from deforming.
They are more costly than traditional dentures, but they last far longer, and we have financing options. Traditional dentures need to be replaced more often both because of wear and tear but also because dentures do not do much at all for maintaining the structure of your jawbone. That means with bone deterioration, you can quickly find that your dentures do not fit anymore. You will not have that problem with snap-in dentures.
