Dentures & Partial Dentures
Teeth may sometimes require extraction due to infections or accidents. Leaving a gap between your teeth can be a serious mistake not only for your appearance but also for your health. First of all, the gap in the mouth affects the way you look, even if it is a back tooth. Secondly, it will become a space for food debris, which can lead to dental caries or periodontal disease. Tooth replacement will not be as painful and expensive as treatment of all potential dental illnesses. Moreover, your teeth may be under constant pressure due to the existing gap, which may cause jaw problems, so your dental bite may eventually be affected. If you make the right decision and decide to replace a missing tooth, you may be offered several options depending on your specific case: •Placement of dental implants (for instance, when you have one tooth missed, it may be replaced by an artificial root covered with a bridge or crown); •Usage of a fixed bridge (if you do not have many teeth missing on one side, this may be a good solution); •Mounting a partial denture (when you need to replace one or more teeth with removable false ones).
