3 Health Issues Caused by Poor Oral Care

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Dr. Michael Wockenfus
3 Health Issues Caused by Poor Oral CareYou'll be surprised to hear that the average adult in the U.S. between the age thirty-five to forty-nine missing seven teeth! Tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth, injury, or a genetic condition can all be behind this missing tooth tragedy.

However, what matters is that you or somebody you know have lost or will lose teeth in the near future and thus need to decide how you'll replace the missing teeth. Fret not; you can opt for different available treatments to ensure your mouth's overall appearance is maintained.

In this blog post, we'll discuss three top tooth replacement options that can help you uphold that vibrant smile:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent choice for when you need a single tooth replacement or when several teeth are absent in different areas of your mouth.

This treatment encompasses surgically positioning a titanium metal frame or post into your jaw. Next, an artificial replacement tooth is mounted to the implant that allows it to remain in place.

The average cost of a single tooth implant ranges from $3,000 to $6,000.

Fixed Dental Bridge

If you are not in favor of dental implants, you can consult a dentist and check whether you're a suitable candidate for a fixed dental bridge. This tooth replacement alternative is ideal for people who are missing a single or more tooth in the same area.

The fixed bridge procedure essentially fills the gap caused by a missing tooth utilizing an artificial tooth or dental prosthetic. The artificial tooth/prosthetic is attached to the adjacent teeth and then bonded using dental cement.

The average cost of a single bridge ranges from $3,000 to $5,000.

Removable Partial Dentures

You can opt for complete dentures if you need a replacement for all your teeth. However, if you only need to substitute some of your teeth, then you can pick removable partial dentures.

This dental treatment comprises replacement teeth attached to a pink, natural-looking base. You can wear them whenever required and take them off before going to bed.

The average cost of removable partial dentures ranges from $1,500 to $3,000.
