If you have a missing tooth, replacing this missing tooth can be done in different ways depending on the location and case.
Dental bridges are used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth; they literally bridge the gap and are made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite).
The Implant option will not require altering the adjacent teeth as it is taking the support from the bone itself like the natural teeth. Dental Implants are made of titanium alloy which is very bio-compatible to the human body.
The Problem with Missing Teeth
When you have a missing tooth and its location is empty you may experience
- Interference with chewing and talking
- Disruption in eating patterns
- Adjacent teeth tipping toward the empty area
- Most importantly, your smile and the overall aesthetics of your face
