What are molar replacements?

When your molars tooth is damaged (because of cavities or accidents that result in cracked/chipped teeth, etc.) or fail to erupt, you may opt for molar replacements to restore your natural and complete dental structure.

Dental replacement is a major branch of dentistry. It involves the restoration of lost or damaged teeth with cosmetically elegant artificial ones that can function like real teeth, offering people a confidence boost.

Why do you need molar implant replacements?

When you lack several teeth, the rest of them are prone to leaning over or moving into the vacant spots, resulting in misalignment. Foods are also likely to get stuck in those spots, increasing the risk of cavities in adjacent teeth and diseases of the gum.

If various teeth are missing, your facial muscles may droop down and your speech may be affected, causing pronunciation problems.

Generally, molar replacements help you gain back your confidence, eat more easily, and adopt proper oral hygiene habits.

Molar replacement techniques

To date, there are 3 basic techniques to replace lost molars:

  • Removable dentures: A removable denture has metal clasps that hook around adjacent teeth, keeping it attached to the jaw. However, as the clasps hook tightly around the roots of adjacent teeth, they may damage those teeth and surrounding gum tissue, speeding up jaw bone loss.

 

Removable dentures

  • Dental bridges: This technique involves filing down the adjacent teeth and fitting a ceramic bridge over the gap. Bridges are recommended when only one or two teeth are missing, not when you lack various teeth or all of your teeth.

 

Dental bridges

  • Dental implants: This technique offers permanent tooth replacements. The new teeth are tightly secured by implants placed deep in the jaw bone and acting as the roots.
