How can u replace the missing tooth ?
Dental implants are always the best option for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are highly recommended because they are highly secure, highly stable, and highly successful. This is the only tooth replacement option that replaces the tooth root, which is responsible for stimulating and strengthening the jawbone.
Dental bridges are a great tooth replacement option because they look, feel, and function like natural teeth.It can be used for patients who have one, two, or three missing teeth in a row.
Removable full or partial dentures are a common tooth replacement option for older adults. These are easily removed from the mouth for cleaning but may take some time to get used to.
So why risk the ongoing damage caused by missing tooth when so many tooth replacement options are available.
