The Importance of Replacing Any Missing Tooth
If you are missing one or more teeth, your dentist at Maroubra Junction Dental Centre will have stressed the importance of replacing them. We can do this one of several ways, through using partial or full dentures, dental bridges or with dental implants. We often recommend dental implants to our patients as these can be a good long-term solution that may be more beneficial for oral health.
Why Dental Implants Can Be a Good Option
Once a tooth is extracted, the bone that used to surround it will gradually reabsorb. This can affect the stability of any adjacent teeth and the dimensions of your jawbone. A dental implant is the only restoration that helps preserve bone through providing stimulation that is very similar to a natural tooth root. A dental implant is self-supporting and unlike dental bridges and partial dentures will only have positive effects on your oral health.
Orthodontics uses fixed or removable appliances to correct the position of teeth and jaws.
