Are Dentures and Bridges a Smart Idea?

Having a missing tooth or a set of teeth can affect the quality of your smile as well as your sense of confidence. It can drastically affect your self-esteem especially when relating or talking to others. Also, a single missing tooth can have a wide ranging effect in the shape and overall condition of your mouth. Missing teeth can lead to bone loss, atrophy, and teeth misalignment. Fortunately, among the most convenient and affordable solutions available are dentures and bridges. These dental solutions are designed to bring your smile and your confidence back so you never have to shy away from people ever again.

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures come in two types. There are partial dentures as well as full dentures. Partial dentures are suitable for people who have one missing tooth or more than one missing teeth. This denture type is normally fitted with clasps so that it fits easily into the rest of your teeth. Partial dentures are normally recommended when the rest of your teeth are not strong enough to accommodate a bridge. Full dentures, also known as false teeth or complete dentures, are normally used when all of your teeth need replacing.

There are several clear advantages of dentures. First off, dentures are an easy, affordable, and convenient alternative to dental implants. It can bring back your youthful appearance, it can help you build your self-esteem, and since they are removable you can care for them whenever necessary.

Why opt for bridges

Bridges on the other hand are normally placed in between healthy, natural teeth, to replace the ones in between which are missing. Bridges are another alternative to dentures and dental implants. A bridge includes custom-made crowns for the teeth on each side and the false teeth that will replace the missing ones. Bridges may be of the permanent or removable type. Removable bridges are generally less expensive and easier to maintain or clean. These types of bridges moreover are easier to make or customize, so you can expect faster service as well.
