What Happens if I Do Nothing?
So what did we mean when we said above that even a single missing tooth can lead to additional dental problems?
Specifically, when a tooth goes missing, the jawbone that used to support it naturally starts to shrink and change shape. As a result, the remaining teeth start to shift into the open space, causing them to misalign. This bone loss causes the surrounding teeth to become unstable and loose to the point that they fall out as well, compounding a patient’s problems. Basically, if you have a gap in your smile, the last thing you should do is ignore it!
One of the most common ways to replace missing teeth is also one of the simplest. With a dental bridge, two crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the missing one(s), and these are attached to any number of prosthetic teeth to fill in the gap. They can be made to be removable or fixed depending on a patient’s preferences, and thanks to our partner dental labs, we ensure they always blend seamlessly into the smile.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are a type of dental prosthetic that can be designed to replace either a few teeth or even an entire dental arch. Thanks to modern-day dental techniques and materials, the dentures of today are very different from the ones your parents or grandparents might have worn. Specially-designed ceramic teeth are affixed to a realistic-looking gum-colored base, and we can design them to suit any patient’s dental needs. Partial dentures simply fit in the smile like the missing piece of a puzzle, while full dentures are placed directly on the gums to bring back a full row of teeth.
Dental implants are truly in a class of their own when it comes to tooth replacement. Firstly, they are the only treatment that restores both the root and the crown of a tooth at the same time. This not only makes them uniquely stable and secure, but it also gives them an unmatched natural-appearance. Basically, they are built just like natural teeth, so they look and function like natural teeth as well. The end result is a type of dental work that is virtually indistinguishable from nature from every angle.
