At Park Place Dental Centre, we understand the impact missing teeth can have on your confidence and overall oral health. That’s why our Brampton, ON dentists led by Dr. Emil Svoboda offer a range of effective tooth replacement options to help restore your smile and improve your quality of life.
To help you make an informed decision, we’ve prepared a detailed comparison of the three most popular tooth replacement options available. Please note that all patient names have been changed to protect their privacy.
Andrew, a 37-year-old male patient, sought a tooth replacement solution for two missing teeth on the side of his mouth. After discussing his options with our dental team, he decided to proceed with a dental bridge as it was the most suitable option for his needs.
During the procedure, the adjacent teeth were carefully filed down to create space for the replacement teeth. It’s worth noting that Andrew’s natural teeth needed to be free from decay and structurally sound to ensure the success and longevity of the bridge. Our team ensured that the bridge was a perfect fit for Andrew’s mouth, providing him with a natural-looking and functional restoration.
Andrew compared all of his options before he made his ultimate selection. After doing his research, here’s what he found:
He also felt that a bridge would present less risk since parts can be easily replaced without pain or surgical efforts.
While a dental bridge can be an effective solution for tooth loss, it’s important to consider all aspects of the procedure. Here are some of the main drawbacks:
Despite these potential risks, it’s important to note that with proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, the likelihood of complications can be minimized, and the dental bridge can provide a long-lasting solution for missing teeth.
Ann-Marie, a 58-year-old female patient, decided to pursue removable dentures as her preferred tooth replacement option. Due to extensive tooth loss in her upper arch and the lack of stable teeth to act as a bridge, removable dentures were the most suitable solution for her. Her replacement teeth are anchored into a plastic material that matches the color of her gums, providing a natural-looking result.
Ann-Marie’s decision to choose dentures was also influenced by her limited budget and lack of insurance coverage for dental implants, which were not viable options due to the extent of her tooth loss.
Based on her personal experience, Ann-Marie found that:
Despite the convenience of her dentures, Ann-Marie has found that:
Albert, a 57-year-old male patient, was missing two teeth due to ongoing problems with tooth decay. After conducting some research on the internet, he discovered that dental implants were a popular and effective option for tooth replacement.
The dental implant process involves placing a foundation of titanium tooth roots into the jawbone, which then fuses with the bone to create a strong and permanent anchor for natural-looking replacement teeth.
Albert underwent the final stages of his dental implant procedure last year and is thrilled with the results. He loves his dental implants because they’re:
Overall, Albert’s experience with dental implants has been positive, and he highly recommends them to anyone looking for a long-lasting, natural-looking tooth replacement option.
While there are some disadvantages to getting dental implants, such as the fact that they’re usually not fully covered by dental insurance and the process requires multiple visits over a few months. As well as the possibility of needing supplementary procedures like bone grafts and tissue augmentation. Despite this, Albert is extremely happy with his decision to get dental implants and wishes he had done it sooner.
