Losing a tooth can be very distressing, and people may be apprehensive about false teeth. Tooth loss can affect confidence, and also the way people feels about themselves. If this becomes an issue then there are options to explore. For some, dentures may be the obvious choice, however, dental implants are also an excellent way of replacing lost teeth.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, is a device that fits over the gums to emulate natural teeth. The denture is removable, so, therefore, needs to be adhered every day to hold it in place. This is a very traditional way of replacing lost teeth and some people are more than happy with this method. However, there is a more permanent option to dentures, which is a dental implant.
Dental implants are a permanent way of replacing lost teeth. Unlike dentures that need to be removed, dental implants are constantly fixed in the mouth. This means that they function just like normal teeth would. Therefore, there is no inconvenience of needing to re-fix them or take them out over night. Dental implants have become very popular and have a high success rate. An implant can be used to replace just one tooth, or a bridge can be used to replace a number of missing teeth.
