If you’ve suffered from a lost tooth or need a severely damaged one removed, the wonderful dentists at Gary H. Morikawa, DDS Inc can offer a variety of services to meet your needs. If you are looking to replace the tooth with a healthy and safe option that can blend well with your remaining teeth, we can help. Two of the more popular options available for you are fixed dental bridges or removable dentures. Below are some of their advantages:

Advantages of Bridges:

– Bridges can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Bridges are permanent fixtures in your mouth that can vastly improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth and even more so than dentures. They are not removable like dentures, which can tend to have the problem of falling out.

– Bridges can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Bridges also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

Advantages of Dentures:

– Dentures can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Dentures are removable fixtures that can improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth. Since they are removable, they do not need to attach to other natural teeth as dental bridges do.

– Dentures can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Dentures also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

The choice between getting fixed or removable dental prostheses does not have to be made alone. The dentists at Gary H. Morikawa, DDS Inc are here to help.
