Replacement Teeth Options
If your existing tooth cannot be repaired, we will recommend the right type of replacement teeth for your needs. There is a range of options that may work for you, depending on how many teeth are impacted and their locations. .
Dental implants are one of the best options for replacement teeth. They can look and function just like your natural teeth. They can also be very comfortable and easy to take care of for most people. Implants are placed into the gone of your mouth to hold them in place. A crown is then added to the top, above the gum line, to create a natural look and a functional tooth.
Both removable and permanent dental bridges are available. These are just what they sound like. The missing tooth is filled in with a crown. This is then attached to the teeth on either side of the missing space. This bridge may be removable for cleaning or can be permanent to create a stronger bite.
For some people, dentures are the right way to go. There are various types of available. Most have an arch-like structure of teeth that fit into space where the tooth was. Partial or full dentures are an option depending on how many teeth you have lost. Traditional dentures are removable, which means you will take them out to clean them each day. This is a more affordable option, but some people have pain and trouble with getting a good fit. They can also slip.
In addition to this, implant-supported dentures are an option. This combines the use of dental implants with the arch of dentures. This option creates a more durable and stronger structure. They can be very flexible in terms of creating a comfortable fit and a durable bite.
