For a variety of reasons, people need to have teeth extracted. Sometimes teeth need to be extracted because they have deteriorated to the point where saving them is not possible, or because the cost of saving them just isn’t in the budget of the patient. Also, some teeth are problematic, like wisdom teeth and therefore it is in the best interest of the patient to remove them. When an extraction is called for, our dentists are very capable, and are able to reduce the stress and discomfort of the patient. In the case of a complicated extraction, like a fully impacted wisdom tooth, we call in our specialist.
The problem with missing teeth is that it becomes the source of all other problems. Not only will you face cosmetic concerns (having an incomplete set of teeth looks bad), you’ll have issues eating or talking properly as well, not to mention the fact that you’re risking more complications with your gums and teeth by having incomplete teeth.
What makes this even more concerning is the fact that most people will lose their permanent teeth at some point in their lives. It’s usually during their old age, but some unfortunately lose their teeth just before they hit 40 years old. So this is going to be a problem you’re going to want to know how to deal with.
Fortunately the dental services in Tijuana, Mexico can give you what you need. If you’re tired of all the expensive charges you’re getting from US dental clinics, you can get affordable services in Tijuana with no sacrifice to quality at all. Here are some of the best options to replace missing teeth:
* Dental Implants – this is a surgical implant into the jawbone, effectively replacing the missing tooth. Think of it as a screw which is topped off with a crown so it looks like your tooth is there. In fact, the implants will look and feel like real teeth – no one will ever know.
* Dental bridges – those who want a cheaper alternative to dental implants can opt for a fixed dental bridge. There are also instances where, because of the condition of your teeth, you can’t opt for implants at all. Dental bridges are effective replacements to missing teeth as well. There’s a lot of debate as to whether dental implants are better than bridges, but more often than not the choice is on a case to case basis.
* Partial Dentures – for those who want something a little less permanent, try these movable dentures for size. This basically allows the patient to live as if he or she has a complete set of teeth (i.e. eat or speak normally), but there are some people who prefer a sense of permanence. This is why hybrid versions of partial dentures are being made as well.
