While permanent teeth are meant to last forever, unforeseen circumstances sometimes make replacement necessary. Modern dentistry gives you several options for restoring the natural beauty of your smile.
Cavities, infections, and accidents are common reasons we may need to replace a tooth. Even one missing tooth can cause problems in the function of your mouth. Since chewing is the first step in digestion, our teeth play a crucial role in delivering necessary nutrients to our bodies.
When a missing tooth leaves a gap in your smile, other teeth will often gravitate toward the space in an attempt to fill it. This can lead to damage in your remaining teeth, so it is important to fill the space if possible.
Luckily, we offer multiple options for restoring gaps in your smile. Dental implants are one of the best solutions for restoring function and appearance. However, we should weigh all options alongside your unique circumstances before deciding on a course of action.
We know these decisions can be difficult, but Dr. Patrick will use his expertise in restorative dentistry to help you make an informed decision that is best for you.
Dental implants can quickly restore your oral health and function. Customized porcelain mimics your natural teeth, and can provide a great solution for your replacement needs. Their versatile function also allows us to use implants to add support to any crowns or bridges you may require.
Removable dentures might be your preferred replacement option. Both full and partial dentures are a great way to restore function while offering the added benefit of removability. These designs can make for added comfort and easy cleaning, which may align better with your needs. We can also use dental implants to add stability to your restoration.
Dental bridges are a more traditional method for replacing teeth. Nowadays, they are commonly combined with implants to add support to your restoration. We can design porcelain bridges to fit any gaps you may have, regardless of size. The result is a seamless and beautiful update to your smile.
