Tooth Replacement Options
If you have experienced tooth loss or are dealing with recurring dental decay it can be frustrating to live day to day with these issues. It can be difficult to eat the foods you enjoy, and you may be feeling frequent discomfort. With the new year around the corner, now is the perfect time to learn more about the treatment options I can provide to change your oral health. I may recommend treatments such as:
This option is one of the best when replacing missing teeth. The treatment process involves replacing the natural tooth root and restoring the function of your teeth. It closely resembles your natural teeth. Implants can also be used as anchors for dentures to provide stability.
This option is used when a full arch of teeth are missing or three or more teeth are missing. Depending on your needs, I may recommend conventional full dentures, immediate full dentures, partial dentures, or implant-supported dentures.
Crowns and Bridges
These options are often used to complete dental implant treatments. A dental crown can be used when the tooth root is healthy but the tooth structure is damaged beyond repair. A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth and uses the supporting teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth.
