Tooth Replacement Options

Tooth Replacement

Teeth are important eating partners and you would like to take them along with yourself for your lunch. Without tooth replacement, you simply cannot enjoy a meal. Teeth also have great aesthetic value, and certainly are more impactful to your appearance and beauty than your dress or even that watch you wear. You miss teeth because of an aged appearance. A back tooth replacement may as well change alignment so as to shift mouth and result in a less flattering facial appearance, and in that clever way, the missing tooth makes its absence known. Bones, similar to muscles, begin atrophying when not used – yet another side effect of missing teeth. Moreover, Jawbones are linked up with our daily routine. We use jawbones for chewing and eating. A tooth Replacement is the best option.

Thanks to modern dentistry, missing teeth can be replaced, and it is a job well done at the Hassaan Dental Clinic!

You can replace the missing teeth in a number of ways, and it is advisable that you know which method is the most to your advantage.

  1. Dental Implants
  2. Fixed Bridges
  3. Removable Partial Dentures

Dental Implants

Implants are the most popular option. They replace both the root and the crown of the tooth. The implant is an artificial tooth root. it is used as anchored to the bone, made of Titanium or some other material accepted by the human body. After the implant is surgically installed, bone begins to grow around it, keeping it strongly in place and thus being highly effective. However, this requires time and the patient needs to wait. The crown is made of porcelain or ceramic and has the outward appearance of a tooth. Once the implant is strongly anchored, a process that may take up to several months in some cases, the crown is attached to the implant using dental cement.

Advantages
Permanent, with little need for replacement, once fixed.
The teeth are to be replaced or adjusted, and thus cost-effective in the long run, despite being a more costly option initially.
Since anchored is firmly formed in the bone, it prevents shrinkage of the jaw bone due to tooth loss.

Disadvantages
Not a suitable option for everyone. Being a surgical procedure, it will pose complications to people with diabetes or leukemia.
May require Long healing time.
May cost more than other treatments.

Fixed Bridges

Bridges are replacement teeth that fill the space of one or more missing teeth. You can fix the bridges with the ceramic bridges most natural looking. A bridge has a false tooth. It has a hollow crown on both sides.

The pontic is the replacement for the missing tooth. This procedure takes more than one visit to the dentist because it consists of multiple steps

  1. Taking an impression of teeth to custom-make the bridge
  2. Preparing the teeth around the gap for bridge placement
  3. Subsequent cementing of the bridge in place.

Advantages

Cost less than implants
Do not require removal for cleaning

Disadvantages
Affect the teeth next to the bridge
You can replace it after a long time.
Cleaning under the pontic may be difficult.

 

Removable Partial Dentures

We use removable partial dentures to cover a few, and not all, missing teeth in an arch. It may require metal clasps to remain fixed, which may be visible to a disadvantage.

Dentures do not prevent bone loss and with the passage of time, jawline continues to change in shape and diminish. This may require their replacement, and though dentures may cost less than implants initially, they may end up costing more in the long run.

Advantages
Less expensive
Easy to repair

Disadvantages

Less stable than other choices
Maybe uncomfortable
May require replacement more frequently than other options
