Our teeth, when taken care of, last for a very long time maybe even an entire lifetime. However, some individuals today don’t quite do a good job in that department. This results in their teeth falling out or being removed way too early. Having a missing tooth may sound manageable but it’s not worth it. The best action to take is having it replaced with any of the products under prosthodontics.
Prosthodontics is a service that deals with missing teeth and how to replace them. It uses false teeth made from a variety of materials to replace said missing teeth. The patient has different choices of the products used like a dental bridge or a set of dentures. Each of these services has their own set of advantages and disadvantages. A patient must first consult his/her dentist to see what product is best used to solve the problem.

Availing our prosthodontics services require you to free up a day or two for the following appointments. Also, certain prosthodontic products take a few days or even a week to be delivered to a waiting time will have to be set for when the actual product arrives.
Also known as a fixed bridge, this product is essentially a false tooth anchored by two abutment caps that go on top of the adjacent teeth of the missing tooth. It’s a great service to take if you’re looking for a more subtle way of replacing a single missing tooth two.
Partial dentures are the go-to products for those that suffer from missing teeth. It’s usually a patient’s first resort when he/she has had a tooth extracted. Being removable, this does mean that the patient can individually clean the product if the need calls for it.
Some of us may not be so lucky to keep all of our teeth. If you are unlucky enough to lose all of it, then a complete set of dentures is the best thing you can ask for.
