What Happens if I Do Nothing?
While simply ignoring your missing teeth might seem like the most conservative financial decision, this approach can actually cost you more and more as time goes on. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone naturally starts to shrink and atrophy, which will not only change your facial appearance but also cause the remaining teeth to shift out of place and misalign. In the end, you’ll have to spend much more fixing all of these problems compared to just replacing your teeth right away and avoiding them.
How does a dental bridge work? It’s right in the name! Using two crowns placed on either side of one or more consecutive missing teeth, this type of prosthetic can literally “bridge” the gap left by 1-4 teeth. In addition to helping a patient regain their normal chewing function, bridges are also designed to look completely natural. They can additionally help prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of place as we touched on above.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
The dentures of today are much, much different than anything your parents or grandparents might have worn. Thanks to specially made ceramic teeth, an acrylic base that looks just like gum tissue, and our team’s attention to every little detail, we can make every patient a prosthetic that looks just as good as it feels, no matter how many teeth they are missing. We can even help them enjoy the most secure and longest-lasting fit possible by using dental implants to keep their denture in place (more on this below).
While most traditional tooth replacements only bring back the visible portion (the crown), dental implants distinguish themselves by being the only treatment that restores the root structure of a tooth as well. As a result, they are the next best thing to nature, providing unmatched function, aesthetics, and longevity. For those who don’t want to just replace their missing teeth but basically get their original teeth back, dental implants are by far the best option.
