For example, you may consider a dental implant. Implants are a sturdy option that are designed to match the size and shape of your mouth. These useful implants rarely need to be replaced, but will allow you to chew and eat comfortably. Furthermore, implants rarely require any additional maintenance.
Another option you can consider is dentures. As you probably know, dentures can be used to replace any number of teeth, including every tooth in a dental arch. While dentures are also designed to look and feel like natural teeth, they will need to be removed and cleaned often.
You should also think about dental bridges. If you decide on a bridge, artificial teeth, also known as pontics, will be shaped to look like your natural teeth. These artificial teeth will be supported on either side by a strong, natural tooth. Like most restorations, a crown will stop your teeth from shifting.
