Few oral health conditions affect patients like losing a tooth – both physically and emotionally. Tooth loss poses so many questions about the future of your health and appearance, making the right decision might seem overwhelming. You don’t have to worry; our experienced dentists are here for you, helping you through the tooth-replacement process every step of the way.
Here are 4 tooth-replacement options we offer in our Kalaheo, HI dental office.
Dental implants are gaining in popularity because they are convenient and look just like your natural teeth. Dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root. Roots have a vital job in the oral health system; they retain bone and offer stability.
We can place a single dental implant or replace your entire arch with dental implants. We also offer implant-retained bridges and dentures for patients who want the best of both worlds.
Fixed Dental Bridge
A dental bridge fills the gap in your smile with one or two dental crowns that hold an artificial tooth in place. While the dental bridge does not replace the root, it does restore the appearance of your smile and make it possible to eat and speak correctly again.
Multiple missing teeth require a different approach. While we can use dental implants for as many teeth as you like, many people want a solution that does not involve surgery. A partial denture can help.
Made out of metal, acrylic, or flexible options, partial dentures attach to natural teeth to stay in place. We match them to your teeth for seamless results.
Edentulous patients (those with total tooth loss) face the biggest decision of all. Fortunately, today’s dentures look and feel better than ever.
