Understanding what treatment option you are choosing is fundamental to your dental health! Your dentist should explain all of the available options, the pros and cons and the investment associated with each. For example, you may have the choice to have a removable denture to replace multiple teeth. The option could be to have something anchored by implants where your natural teeth were and not be removable. Similarly, if you were missing one tooth, should it be replaced with an implant or bridge? Each decision is very case specific, but the most important part is if you have understood all of the treatments available to you? What are the positive and negative risks associated with each option? Talk to your dentist to find out what they are and understand the impact to your dental health!
