Many improvements have been made in the dental industry which provides for alternative methods of tooth replacement. Rather than relying on the merits of dentures or fixed bridges, implants can provide a more permanent solution. There are some complications when it comes to using the traditional denture or bridge method for tooth replacement.
Bone loss is a common occurrence in individuals who wear removable dentures. Not only does it create changes in facial structure, it also causes dentures to fit improperly. Ill-fitting dentures are responsible for making embarrassing clicking noises when a person chews or talks; and they can become uncomfortable to wear. A bridge, on the other hand, uses neighboring teeth to hold them in place. The installation of a bridge requires the anchoring teeth, called abutments, to be filed down and can cause otherwise healthy teeth to become subject to decay. Although there are some complications to these treatments, they are generally harmless and certainly possible ways to replace missing teeth.
