Are you embarrassed to show your smile because you are missing teeth? It is not uncommon for people to feel diminished in their self-confidence as a result of missing teeth. With modern dentistry, we are able to not only restore the look and feel of your natural teeth but also create replacements that will last for many years to come. You have options. Here are a few of the most common tooth replacement solutions.

Dentures

When one or more teeth have been lost, dentures can provide an effective solution. Their purpose is to create a realistic and aesthetically pleasing smile. They are ideal for patients who are missing multiple teeth on either the top or bottom of their mouth. The first step in the process is taking an impression of your mouth. The impression will be sent to a laboratory for the creation of a customized set of dentures. Once your dentures have been prepared, your doctor will ensure that they fit properly and make any adjustments that may be necessary. Clean your dentures regularly with a non-abrasive cleanser.

Bridges

The term “partial dentures” may have been used in the past to describe dental bridges. A dental bridge is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. As a result, your existing teeth are prevented from shifting into the empty gaps left by your missing teeth. You can replace your missing teeth with bridges by using your surrounding teeth as anchors. A bridge can be customized to look exactly like your natural teeth; you will not even be able to tell the difference.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a long-lasting alternative to replacing a missing tooth. Unlike dentures, which may need to be replaced after a few years, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. During the implant process, our team will ensure that your gum tissue is healthy and that you have adequate bone support to anchor the implant. Some patients may require additional preparations, such as a bone graft, in order to ensure the implant has a sturdy and stable foundation. Your smile can be improved by filling in the gaps with dental implants.

Our team specializes in providing tooth replacement options and can assist you in choosing the right solution for your individual needs. In order to prevent deterioration of your gums and the shifting of teeth into these empty spaces, it is important to fill the gaps between missing teeth.
