Which Tooth Replacement Option Is Right For You?
Have you recently had a tooth extracted and need to decide on a tooth replacement option? Or perhaps you have been missing teeth for quite some time and are ready to make the investment in replacing your teeth. There are many reasons that a patient might be missing a tooth, such as severe decay, an accident, a medical condition, medication, or family history. Whatever the reason for needing a tooth replaced, we know that it can be tough to decide which option is best for your lifestyle and budget. We offer a variety of options that can help you restore the functionality of your teeth and help you love your smile again.
Tooth Replacement Options
At Caring Dental of Spotswood, we want to help our patients restore their self-confidence and choose a tooth replacement option that is best for them. We offer options such as:
When looking for a permanent solution, this may be the option for you. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement option that closely mimics your natural teeth. An artificial tooth root is surgically implanted into the jawbone and completed with a dental crown on top. This option allows patients to enjoy their favorite foods and, if cared for properly, can last for the rest of your life.
Like the name, this method is used to bridge the gap between a missing tooth or teeth. Crowns are attached on either side of the missing tooth, with a replacement tooth in the middle.
These are removable replacements for missing teeth. Complete dentures can replace all of the teeth, while partial dentures fill in any space left behind by missing teeth and eliminate the possibility that remaining teeth will shift out of place.
This method utilizes implants and dentures, adding stability and reducing the movement seen with traditional dentures.
