Today’s dental technologies and advances offer several alternatives to procedures like dentures or fixed bridges. Both of these tooth replacement procedures are linked to an increased risk of complications over time. Wearing dentures can cause bone loss which takes its toll on the facial structure and can also alter the fit of dentures. Poorly fitting dentures can make embarrassing clicking sounds when the wearer is eating or drinking and even talking. One of the key issues with fixed bridges is that adjacent teeth need to be ground down, and this process can make healthy teeth more susceptible to damage. Still, both of these procedures are considered to be safe and viable methods of tooth replacement.
The latest research shows that dental implants provide better long term results for replacing missing teeth. Titanium implants are fused directly into the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. These implants do not slip or make embarrassing noises, and they can be difficult to tell apart from your natural teeth. The procedure for dental implants in Las Vegas boasts a high success rate.
