What is tooth replacement procedure

What is tooth replacement procedure

Dental replacements, also known as dental prosthetics, are devices used to replace missing teeth. There are several types of dental replacements, each suited to different needs and preferences:

  1. Dental Implants: These are artificial tooth roots typically made of titanium that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once the implant fuses with the bone, a crown is placed on top to resemble a natural tooth. Dental implants are considered a permanent solution and provide excellent stability and functionality.
  2. Dental Bridges: A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) held in place by crowns attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are used when there are healthy teeth adjacent to the gap, providing support for the bridge.
  3. Dentures: Dentures are removable appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. They can be either full dentures (replacing all teeth in the upper or lower jaw) or partial dentures (replacing only a few missing teeth). Dentures are usually made from acrylic resin and can be supported by the gums, remaining teeth, or dental implants.
  4. Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns can also be used to anchor dental bridges or cover dental implants.

The choice of dental replacement depends on various factors including the number of missing teeth, the condition of the surrounding teeth and gums, bone density, overall oral health, and patient preference. It’s essential to consult with a dentist or prosthodontist to determine the most suitable option for individual needs.
