Why you should call our dental office to replace missing teeth.

While it can seem easier and more cost-effective to avoid seeking an artificial tooth after losing an adult permanent tooth, there are far too many health risks accompanying that decision. We encourage people to visit us as soon as possible. A replacement is not only more appealing than an empty space, but it is also better for oral health. If one leaves a tooth gap open for too long, the jaw structure will eventually begin change through the process of resorption.

Resorption causes crooked teeth and an unnatural jaw formation. An empty space also leaves the remaining teeth more vulnerable to decay and plaque build up. Furthermore, a missing tooth or missing teeth can put more pressure on the other teeth when chewing. The importance of replacing a missing tooth is vital for these reasons. Here are a few options for dental replacements:

Options for replacing missing teeth

A Dental Bridge:

A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth, or teeth, and two anchors that attach to the existing teeth by crowns. A dental bridge is a secure option that we often use as a restorative dentist. A dental bridge is not the most permanent option, but it is considered permanent. A bridge will restore one’s smile and chewing ability, filling the tooth gap in an attractive manner. It will also prevent the other teeth from shifting out of place.

A Dental Implant:

A dental implant provided can offer patients a solution so permanent, it is similar to having a natural tooth back in place. An implant involves the placement of a titanium post into the tooth cavity in the jawbone. The bone in the jaw will naturally graft to the titanium with time, providing the most permanent solution to a missing tooth.

We will attach the artificial tooth to the titanium post, providing patients with durability and security. An implant is also the most attractive replacement option as it fits securely into place and looks just like natural teeth.

If you have lost any teeth in an accident, for your oral health, it is important that you receive a replacement. Another perk of having a restorative dentist replace your teeth is that you will once again have a natural-looking, whole smile. The esthetic value of a quality teeth replacement is unbeatable since you will also be able to enjoy eating without worrying about harming your remaining teeth. The benefits of replacing your teeth are clear. Visit James J. Stevens DDS today for the treatment you need.
