What are the advantages of permanent tooth replacement?
Q: I am 30 years old. What are the advantages or disadvantages of permanent dentures over temporary ones? Which of the two is more advisable? I was told by someone that unlike the dentures that can be removed and put on again, permanent dentures may cause a lot of dental problems in the long run? Is this true?
A:Permanently fixed replacements of teeth are definitely better not just because they don't have to be removed and put back again and again but more importantly: 1. They are functionally better and 2. They do not endanger the health of the other teeth. For a patient of your age group fixed replacement of teeth is the obvious choice. However it is important that you consult a specialist for this.
