If you are missing a tooth or have just recently lost one in an accident then you need not worry as there are many things that you can do to replace or fix the tooth. Two of the most common ways to replace missing teeth are to either place a fixed bridge, or get dental implants. There is however an issue with the first option. Placing a fixed bridge to replace the gap in your teeth can mean that your teeth will need to be altered a bit even if they are healthy. This is something many dentists do not really want to do as they want to save as many of your teeth as they possibly can; that is something that cannot be promised in fixed bridges. So unless you need to get your teeth adjusted and there is no other option, a fixed bridge should be avoided.
The better option that you can opt for is to get a dental implant put in to replace your missing tooth. For those who need dental implants Los Angeles Dental Town provides excellent service and guarantees your smile will be back at the end of the operation. The reason dental implants are so great is because they serve as a complete and proper replacement for your teeth and not just a show piece you have in your mouth. The dental implants are made up of three things; the post, the abutment, and the crown. The post is the part of the dental implant that goes in to your gums, down to your jaw bone and acts as the root holding the tooth together. The abutment is placed over the post and the crown is then fit on top of the post placed in your mouth. This completes the replacement of your tooth.
