There are various ways to replace teeth but this is determined by the position of the gap, its size and presence or absence of adjoining teeth. Depending upon the above factors and your preference, the methods can be broadly classified as removable options and fixed options.
RPD is usually a more affordable option compared to bridges or implants, and the most non-invasive procedure for replacing missing teeth. They are typically made of metal and gum coloured plastic, which also matches the natural shade of your gums. Removable partial dentures are easier to repair and don’t rely on neighbouring teeth for support and retention.
Snap-On Smile is an easy and painless way to obtain a beautiful smile. It is for just about anyone. It is a great alternative to partial dentures with no hooks or without filling your mouth with plastic.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth.
A dental implant has several benefits. Like the roots of natural teeth, it stimulates the jawbone when you chew. This preserves the jawbone and keeps it healthy. Also, an implant is strong, comfortable, and secure. When the restoration is in place, the implant looks and feels much like natural teeth.
