Most people will consider replacement of missing teeth to improve their appearance but it will also improve your speaking and chewing abilities, and thus enable you to enjoy all variety of foods and drinks.
In fact, replacing missing teeth is vital for maintaining good oral health and overall well-being. Missing teeth can lead to various problems including loss of jawbone density, a sunken facial appearance, misalignment of remaining teeth and increased risk of decay. So, it’s important to address missing teeth and explore the treatment options available.
For some people, replacing missing teeth can be quite daunting, and most people will take a little while to process the steps. However, we’ve got you covered with a summary of your options below.
Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement and are the next best thing to your natural teeth. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed into your jaw. After it integrates with the surrounding bone, a crown is then fixed onto the implant to replace the missing teeth.
Additionally, in severe cases with multiple missing teeth, implants can be used in combination with dentures to help loose dentures stay “locked” in the mouth, creating a more stable and comfortable environment. These are known as implant-supported dentures. If you lack the bone density for conventional dental implants, all-on-4 implants may be a better solution for you to consider. Using only up to 4 strategically placed implants, this requires far less bone density and your prosthetic teeth can be fitted on top just as successfully. Assess your eligibility for these treatments by coming in for a consultation with one of our dental professionals.

In cases of single tooth replacements, bridges are considered the second-best solution. A dental bridge is when the two teeth on either side of a missing tooth gap receive crowns, and then a fake tooth, or “pontic” is added in between to fill the space. Here are some of pros and cons.
We offer both full and partial dentures at Purity Dental for those prefer more conventional methods of tooth replacement. These days, partial dentures, which are removable appliances, are ideally the last best option for tooth replacement. Partial dentures come in different shapes and materials. As we mentioned previously, dentures can also be used in combination with dental implants (implant-supported dentures) to create a more stable environment for your new teeth.
