You probably know that missing a tooth can be embarrassing and that you should have a missing tooth addressed as soon as possible. However, did you know that missing teeth can also affect the health of your entire mouth? If you’re missing teeth, we recommend considering the benefits of a bridge or an implant.
In reality, one of the major benefits of an implant is the fact that they’re actually quite durable. If you decide on an implant, you may never need to have it replaced. Furthermore, replacing an implant is fairly simple. You’ll also be able to make sounds properly and chew comfortably once again.
If you’re missing multiple teeth, an implant may not be the best option for you. Instead, we recommend considering the benefits of a dental bridge. Bridges are attached to a natural tooth, or to an implant. This makes bridges extremely sturdy. Bridges are also useful because one bridge can be used to replace up to three teeth. While not as durable as implants, bridges can last for up to ten years.
There are other options you can consider for replacing missing teeth. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of a bridge, an implant, or any of your other restoration options, please don’t hesitate to give Somerset Family Dental a call at 480-359-1478. Dr. Brandon J. Ryff and our team are eager to hear from you soon.
