A dental bridge is used when a patient has either lost a single tooth or a few teeth in a row. The prosthetic teeth used to fill the gap are held in place by dental crowns that rest on your natural teeth. Unlike dentures, bridges are permanently fixed in place, so patients don’t need to worry about them slipping at inconvenient times.
If you have lost an entire arch of teeth, a denture is usually the most comprehensive solution available. Full dentures, which are held in place via natural suction (or an adhesive if needed), can replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw at once, restoring the basic functions of your mouth and making it possible to smile with confidence again. Patients who have only lost a few teeth can ask about a partial denture that fits into these gaps like a puzzle piece.
Dental implants are universally considered to be a step above all other forms of tooth replacement. That’s because they restore the roots of the teeth as well as the crowns, giving your new teeth greater stability and strength than they would have otherwise. Not only do they bring back the health of your smile, but they also help maintain your jaw and other oral structures. Plus, they have been shown to last decades longer than other solutions.
