Many people think that removable dentures are the best way to replace missing teeth. While it is a suitable solution, temporary dentures also have a lot of disadvantages. For one, it is removable, which means missing teeth can still be exposed. It does not really feel natural and comfortable, and can significantly limit the person's chewing capacity.
Other people, who are only missing a tooth or two, often opt for fixed bridges. While it is a good way to replace missing teeth for some, the use of bridges also means the person would also have their perfectly good adjacent teeth altered to hold the cap that will support the bridge. Just like dentures, it may feel unnatural to some.
For individuals looking for the most natural, in terms of look and feel, replacement teeth possible, dental implants is the way to go. This involves having an implant post, which is made of titanium or non-metallic zirconia being implanted to replace the root of the missing tooth. After melding with the jaw bone, it can support the dental implant for many years.
