The Modern Alternative
We have very quickly come from a time when the expectation was that virtually everyone would lose some or all of their teeth and be left with dentures. We are no longer living in a time when we can expect dental disease and all of its attendant miseries.
There are still many people who suffer in silence with missing teeth and loose dentures, people who have failing teeth wondering what the future holds.
Now we have dental implants we can actually replace missing teeth helping to rebuild damaged mouths.This great innovation has expanded massively worldwide as its potential is realised. It is not a universal remedy, but using dental implants allows spaces in the mouth to be filled without damaging existing teeth or to give support where there are no teeth at all.
For every space that you have in your mouth there are four realistic choices:
- Do nothing
- Use some form of denture be it in plastic or with a metal base
- Use adjacent teeth to support false teeth. This is called a Bridge.
- Use some form of implant based tooth or teeth.
- In specific circumstances there are some alternatives but they are more unusual.
