Your Options for Replacing Missing Teeth
Did you know that almost 70% of American adults between the ages of 35 and 44 are missing at least one permanent tooth? There are a number of options you can choose from to improve your smile, your self-confidence, and the way your mouth functions. Fixed bridges use neighboring teeth to support the prosthetic tooth or teeth, and can last for many years. Dentures are an affordable option, and there is no need to alter healthy teeth in your mouth if you just need a partial denture. Tooth extraction may be necessary if you and your dentist think a full denture is the right choice for you. Dental implants have their advantages, but they are at risk of breaking inside your jawbone and may cause infections. Check out this infographic from your Atlanta dentist to learn more about replacing missing teeth.
