Tooth decay may be the outcome of poor dental hygiene, sugary and acidic food, genetics, age or improper nutrition. It is always advisable to consult a dentist at the first sign of cavities or any other dental disorder. Any delay or negligence aggravates the infection and you may end up losing a teeth or the dentist may suggest an extraction to save the adjoining teeth from the infection. Besides affecting your appearance, the missing tooth will add strain on the adjoining structure and will weaken your jawbone. Replacing the missing teeth becomes imperative to retaining good oral health. Three types of artificial teeth treatments are available to overcome this dental disorder. Partial dentures have a pink plastic base that fit over your gums providing support to the artificial teeth. The removable base is attached to a metal framework or precision attachment to fix them. Dental bridges are used for replacing one or two missing teeth. Here, the artificial teeth are anchored permanently to the adjoining teeth. Dental implants provide a root structure to hold the prosthetic teeth. The metal root/frame is screwed into the jawbone or placed over it. As the gum tissue heals, the metal frame amalgamates with the jawbone eliminating the need for frequent readjustments. Dental implants are slightly expensive, but they are long lasting and more comfortable. However, your gums and bone structure should be in good condition to support the implants. Any procedure to replace missing teeth takes 3 to six months to complete. Your dentist will suggest the most appropriate kind of treatment depending upon the condition of the remaining teeth and jawbone.
