Dentures and bridges

Dentures and bridges

The treatment of missing teeth

When a tooth is lost due to the progression of decay, periodontal disease or injury, dentures or bridges are your choice.

You may think that “it’s okay to lose one tooth”, but if left unattended, various physical disorders may appear including, but not limited to:

  • Malocclusion
  • Prone to temporomandibular disorders
  • Other teeth become brittle
  • Gives stress to the digestive system
  • Increased wrinkles and sagging on the cheek due to weakened facial muscles

Dentures

Denture treatment is divided into “full dentures” and “partial dentures” and either one is applied depending on the condition of the teeth.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are a treatment used when you are missing all of your teeth. Full dentures consist of an artificial tooth and a base called a denture base. If the health insurance is applied, the base is made of plastic, and if it is no, you can choose from metal or silicone denture base, which are easier to wear.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when one to several teeth are missing.

The benefit of partial dentures is that it is easy to maintain cleanliness as you can easily remove and clean them and that you do not need to shave the remaining teeth. It can also be repaired when bite problems arise.

However, depending on the position, the appliance may be noticeable and may look unpleasant. In addition, it is important to note that because of the strain on the teeth on which the appliance is placed, failure to clean and maintain it can lead to gum disease and shorten the life of the remaining teeth.

Bridge

Dentures and bridges

A bridge is a treatment that uses the teeth on both sides of a missing tooth to hold an artificial tooth in place. The teeth on both sides of the missing tooth are shaved to form a foundation and to create a bridge over the missing tooth. It is mainly used for one or two defects.

Advantages of Bridge

Because it is fixed, there is little discomfort and you can chew with a feeling that is close to your own teeth. Treatment period is relatively short and the appearance is natural.

Disadvantages of Bridge

It is necessary to remove a large portion of the adjacent tooth to be the base, and in some cases, it may be necessary to remove the nerve portion. The burden that would normally be placed on the missing tooth is concentrated on the underlying tooth. Failure to clean the tooth increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease in the underlying tooth.
