What Happens if You Do Nothing?
Perhaps you’re only missing one tooth that can’t really be seen in your smile. It’s okay to ignore it then, right? Unfortunately, in many cases, untreated tooth loss only leads to even more tooth loss. The jawbone in the area will likely start to atrophy, which will cause the neighboring teeth to shift and misalign. Patients with missing teeth are also much more likely to develop gum disease, which in itself is actually the leading cause of tooth loss in the US! No matter how many teeth you are missing or where they are located, it’s always a good idea to replace them for both your long-term oral health and appearance.
Dental bridges are great for replacing one or more teeth missing in a row. They work like this: two dental crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the missing ones, and these are used to support prosthetic teeth that close the gap. With one, we’re able to restore balance to the bite as well as prevent the neighboring teeth from shifting out of place. Depending on a patient’s preferences, both fixed and removable bridges are available.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
For generations, dentures have provided an excellent option for patients missing a large number of teeth. Modern-day dentures are more natural-looking, comfortable, and durable than anything your parents or grandparents might have worn, and we can now use digital technology to determine the perfect fit. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or an entire row, we can custom-make a prosthetic just for you that will bring back your oral health and confidence at the same time.
Whenever a patient comes to see us wanting to replace their missing teeth, we always recommend dental implants first. Why? Because they are by far the most complete solution available today. They restore both the root and crown of a tooth to deliver a result that is virtually indistinguishable from nature, and with the proper care, they can easily last for a lifetime to come. For patients looking for a permanent solution, implants are the way to go.
