What Happens if I Do Nothing?
Even if you’re just missing one tooth towards the back of your mouth where no one can see it, you should still get it replaced. The jawbone in the area will naturally start to shrink over time, and the nearby teeth will likely drift into the gap. This can throw off the alignment of the bite, lead to jaw pain, and drastically increase your risk for additional tooth loss. Rather than letting some or all of these problems develop, it’s best to replace any missing teeth as soon as you can.
A dental bridge uses a series of crowns bonded together to restore one to three missing teeth in a row. The crowns on either end are placed over natural teeth to give the entire prosthetic stability. Bridges not only close unsightly gaps in the smile, but they also prevent the dental drift that we touched on above. They can be removable or fixed depending on a patient’s preferences, and they can also be secured using dental implants.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Several teeth can be brought back at once with the right denture, and ours are designed to look great, fit comfortably, and last for decades. We can provide a partial denture that fills in all the gaps between the remaining teeth, or we can use a full denture to restore an entire row at once. Either way, it will dramatically improve a patient’s oral function while giving them a smile they’re proud to show off.
While all other tooth replacements only bring back the portion you can see, dental implants actually restore the root structure below the gum line as well. The result is a restoration that perfectly mimics a real tooth in every way, and it can be trusted to last for at least 30 years. With dental implants, a patient feels like they’ve gotten their natural teeth back, recovering their bite and confidence at the same time.
