You Have Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
If missing teeth are becoming a problem for you, you have several treatment options available to help restore your confidence in your smile. Patients who are missing teeth or have significant gaps in their smile may benefit from dental implants, bridges, dentures, or a combination of all three.
Simply stated, dental implants are titanium posts which we place into the gums. The existing jawbone bonds with the posts just as it would with a natural tooth. A porcelain crown is then placed on top of the post.
Bridges, as their name implies, are meant to cover gaps or spaces left behind by teeth that have been lost. Bridges help stabilize teeth that surround the area of a missing tooth and ensure more teeth do not shift or become lost.
Dentures, which can cover partial or full areas of the mouth and are often secured by implants, help restore your ability to eat, speak, and function clearly after the loss of multiple teeth.
