Do you have missing teeth? Have you noticed a change in your quality of life because you feel embarrassed about the gap in your smile or because you can’t eat all the foods you love?
These are common problems that go along with missing teeth, and they take a toll on you every day in ways you probably never considered. That’s the bad news. The good news is that you don’t have to live like this because today, patients in San Jose have more tooth replacement options than ever before.
Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” for tooth replacement because of the many benefits they offer. First, a dental implant looks, functions, and feels natural because it replaces the entire tooth, from root to crown. Implants also help prevent jawbone loss that occurs after tooth loss and can last a lifetime with proper care.
A bridge is a prosthetic that your dentist customizes to replace one or two teeth missing from the same spot in your mouth. Unlike a dental implant that gains its stability from an artificial root in your jaw, a bridge uses an artificial tooth held in place by crowns on adjacent teeth.
Dentures and Partials
If you are missing several or all of your teeth, full and partial dentures are an affordable alternative to dental implants. Far from being just a tooth replacement for the elderly, realistic-looking, modern dentures can be designed to complete any smile, regardless of age.
