If several teeth in a row are missing, then crowns may be insufficient. A bridge proves an excellent solution to this and will give you a short row of perfectly functioning, aesthetically pleasing teeth. Bridges are typically made from porcelain and can be secured via a few different ways, depending on the state of your other teeth, how many teeth need to be replaced, and the condition of the neighbouring teeth.
In some cases, if the neighbouring teeth are being replaced too, or there is a big enough gap, dental implants can be used to anchor the bridge in place. If the root remains, then crowns can also be used, which is more common. Bridges can restore the ability to chew and use your teeth as normal, as having a significant gap in your teeth can cause jaw problems, and strain on other teeth, which in turn can affect their health.
To replace several teeth at once, and even a full row, a set of dentures can be a great option. Dentures are far more advanced than they used to be. Now, they are designed in a digital laboratory, so the design best suits your mouth and will be as comfortable as possible. They will also be designed to best fit your gums. One of the main concerns for dentures is comfort, and quite often if they are not properly fitted, they can rub or grind against the gums as you chew, which can become painful over time. There are gels and adhesives available, however the best course of action to take is to ensure that the dentures are correctly designed in order to fit your gums snugly. If you are looking for a dentist in Richmond who can give you advice on your dentures, then do not hesitate to contact Sheen Dental for more information.
Dental implants are a relatively new treatment that uses extremely advanced methods to instal a new tooth. Dental implants work by inserting a titanium screw directly into the jawbone, and after the bone has grown around the implant, a crown can then be inserted onto the implant. Dental implants are extremely strong, and with proper care, should last an entire lifetime.
They are also a fantastic treatment for restorative dentistry, as they can provide the foundation to other treatments such as bridges and dentures. Implants can be fitted with detachable components, so dentures can be attached and re-attached to them easily. If you are looking for advice on dental implants, then please locate a dentist in Richmond, at Sheen Dental, for more information.
