Is There Really a "Best" Tooth Replacement Option?

Posted on 8/17/2016 by Implant & Periodontal Associates NW
A diagram of how a dental implant works.If you don't ask the question you may never know the answer. Yes, there is definitely a superior tooth replacement option on the market today. When missing a tooth or several teeth, life can be hard.

It can change the way you speak, eat, and the way you are perceived by your peers. Heck, it can even hurt your self-image.

Because there are a few different options on the market, let's take a look at the different aspects of tooth replacement in order to determine what the best option would be.

Replacing a Tooth in Form

Making it appear as though you have a tooth is the easiest aspect of replacing a tooth. Dentures, and removable prosthetics make it appear as though you have a tooth in pretty much the same way a dental implant or crown does.

Removable prosthetics don't do much more than just appear to be a real tooth, however. In order to eat you must remove prosthetics or removable bridges. They don't do a whole lot for your oral health when compared with dental implants.

Replacing a Tooth in Function

The function of the tooth is the most important aspect of tooth replacement. Not only does a dental implant allow you to eat with the same confidence as your natural teeth, it gives you all the same oral health benefits that a real tooth would.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are able to replace a tooth in both form and function. They stimulate the hard and soft tissues within your mouth to encourage a healthy mouth. This prevents further tooth loss, something that removable prosthesis are not so great at.
