Each year about 110 million teeth must be substituted throughout the world by cosmetic dentists in order to ensure the best dental health. If you find yourself in a situation where some of your teeth have succumbed to decay and need to be replaced entirely, it is best to entrust the procedure to a dentist who uses only the newest and most effective practices.
For example, it used to be that dentures were among the preferred ways to replace original teeth that were either missing or had to be removed. But dentures can require a lot of maintenance, besides being a bit unwieldy and sometimes even ill fitting.
The preferred approach is increasingly becoming dental implants, in which root like structures made of titanium are installed that serve as the means of support for replacements that resemble natural teeth. If your teeth are not so foregone that they need to be replaced entirely, dental veneers can be used to improve the overall look of your teeth without having to remove them. If your teeth are discolored or have sustained some degree of deterioration, but still retain their ability to function properly, this approach may be best.
In order to prevent the need for any of these procedures, the importance of oral health maintenance through consistent teeth cleaning cannot be overstated. In fact, doctors suggest that you visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning.
