Maybe you don’t mind your missing teeth too much – does that mean it’s okay to simply ignore them? Untreated tooth loss tends to only lead to even more tooth loss. The jawbone in the area of missing teeth will naturally start to shrink and change shape over time, causing the remaining teeth to shift & misalign, which can lead to pain and excess wear in the bite. People with missing teeth are also much more likely to develop gum disease, the leading cause of adult tooth loss! When it comes to your smile, a full one is usually healthy, and an incomplete one is only destined for more issues.
If you’re missing one or more teeth in a row, a bridge is a simple and effective way to restore both the function and aesthetics of your smile at the same time. We simply place two dental crowns on either side of the missing teeth, and these are used to support prosthetic teeth that fill in the gap. Depending on a patient’s preferences, they can get either a removable bridge or one held in place with dental implants (more about them below).
Dentures & Partial Dentures
For hundreds of years, dentures have been used as a solution to replace numerous missing teeth, and while they’re still often relied on today, modern ones are much different than those your parents or grandparents might have worn. Thanks to the latest materials, dentures are now more comfortable, natural-looking, and durable than ever before. Our team can provide you with a custom prosthetic designed to replace multiple teeth or even an entire row, restoring your smile’s strength and confidence at the same time.
Whenever a patient comes to us wanting to replace their missing teeth, we always recommend dental implants first. Why? Because they are simply the best option available today. They are the only treatment that restores the entire structure of a tooth both above and below the gum line, and with the proper care, they can easily last for the rest of a patient’s life as well. And, unlike many other dental offices in the area, our team is actually able to provide the entire procedure under one roof, helping patients rebuild their smiles in the most efficient way possible.
