The Downside of Traditional Tooth Replacements
Traditional forms of tooth replacement include dental bridges and partial or full dentures. These methods are successful but come with their own set of complications, such as needing repair and replacement often, costing you more money in the long run. Bridges and dentures do not preserve your jaw bone. As your bone wears away, the fit of your dentures will suffer, causing embarrassing noises and slippage.
