Are you missing a tooth or have a gap between your teeth that you'd like to close? If so, you're not alone. Tooth loss is a global problem, and many people are looking for ways to replace their missing teeth. Fortunately, there are several treatments available that can help you achieve a healthy, beautiful, and long-lasting smile. Dental implants are one of the most popular treatments for replacing missing teeth.
These are small metal rods that are inserted into the gum and jaw. In a way, they act as the roots and main structure of the missing tooth. Once inserted, the implant and the mandible begin to fuse, creating a strong bond that firmly secures the implant and stimulates bone health. Fixed bridges are another option for replacing missing teeth.
We make our bridges with zirconia and porcelain, which look and shine like your natural teeth. We have fixed bridges that are not removable, but we can even attach bridges to dental implants for the best stability. If you're missing multiple teeth, full removable dentures may be an option. However, this treatment can be quite invasive and require multiple visits to the dentist.
Tooth loss can also be caused by gum disease. If you notice that the space between your teeth is getting wider, call your dentist right away. No matter what treatment you choose, understanding your options is key to achieving the healthy, beautiful smile you want. Be sure to consult your dentist before making any decisions about replacing your missing teeth.
