Dental Prosthesis As A Replacement For Missing Teeth
Posted on 11/8/2021 by Northstar Dental
Replacing missing teeth is the first step to achieve a better appearance and dental health. The loss of one or multiple teeth, accompanied by prolonged periods of time with gaps in your teeth, leads to slopes and deviations in the remaining teeth, accumulation of food, swallowing and phonation problems, increased risk of cavities, and gum disease. Therefore, if we do not treat it, it can lead to the loss of the tonicity of face muscles and cause chewing problems. Keep on reading to learn more about dental prostheses.
Dental Prosthesis Treatment Options
A dental prosthesis is a treatment that emerges with the intention of artificially restoring one or more teeth to recover the functionality and aesthetics of your smile. These are personal pieces, adapted to the needs of each of our patients. Its base has a pigmentation called polymethylmethacrylate, which mimics the gum tissue and serves as a protective layer to prevent bacteria.
There are several types of prostheses available; among them are dentures, which are removable artificial teeth, useful in cases of multiple teeth loss. Dentures need an adaptation period, and they will help our patients to eat, communicate and smile. We also have bridges, which we attach to neighboring teeth and require flossing to stay clean. Dental implants are structures attached to the jawbone, which are also an excellent option for missing teeth.
Why Should Our Patients Use Dental Prosthesis?
In addition to filling the space of the missing tooth, prostheses rehabilitate physiological functions lost during the absence of teeth, such as chewing, swallowing, and phonation. Prevents dental migration and loss of bone mass, and helps to rescue dental aesthetics. For these reasons, dental prostheses are a solution to achieve a successful treatment in the coverage and restoration of missing teeth. Consult our specialists to find the most convenient treatment for your unique dental needs.
