Reasons for Tooth Extractions

Having gaps between your teeth affects the appearance of your face. Too many gaps give you a sunken face due to receding bone mass in the cheeks where the teeth were extracted. If you have to extract a tooth, you should not worry. You can fill the gap with a dental implant that works as well as your original tooth. Here are some of the reasons that can result in tooth extraction.

Who Are Candidates for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are permanent and more stable replacements for the natural teeth that were lost. If you are thinking about getting dental implants, you should know if you are a good candidate for them.

Candidates for Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is one of the most common types of restorations and is used to replace missing teeth that may have fallen out or required extraction. The design of a dental bridge is very simple. It comprises of an artificial tooth, called a pontic, which is usually created using a porcelain crown and in the perfect shape, size and color to match the rest of your smile. This tooth is attached on each side to at least one more porcelain crown that is designed to sit over the top of your natural teeth on either side of the gap. These are known as abutments and will act as the main support for the bridge, securing it in place.
