This is a good cost-effective option and can look aesthetically nice. But the “removable” element of it is often a disadvantage suffered by many.
Also, over time dentures tend to get loose and uncomfortable. Dentures are often associated with “aging” and in today’s modern era it is not something that is considered appealing.
This is a restorative procedure that involves porcelain/metal work to recreate the appearance of the lost teeth.
It is often ideal for situations involving the loss of 1-2 only. Also, the two teeth either side of the space must have enough strength to support the entire bridge. These are called abutment teeth.
A bridge may not be an option to consider if these abutment teeth are whole with nothing wrong with them.
This is because the bridge will involve cutting and preparation of the sound tooth tissue of the abutment teeth to make room for the porcelain framework. This may weaken them.
This is a great treatment when you do not want to involve any of the other teeth or even in situations where there are no other teeth for support.
However, it is a surgical procedure, so our dentists are use X-Rays to determine how suitable you are for the implant treatment. We will also check your medical health in detail.
To do nothing
Although Implants produce great aesthetic results and restore the ability to chew food properly, they involve a surgical procedure.
Hence, we must make the decision to do treatment very carefully.
The choice of no choice would be the option if you were contra-indicated for treatment due to increased risks in any of the other options.
Your Hertfordshire dentist will help you understand these choices in more detail after fully understanding your needs and requirements; and understanding the foundation of your jaws that need to be recreated.
