Missing teeth can have a profound impact on your oral health and daily life. Not only do your teeth affect your ability to smile, speak and eat comfortably, but missing teeth can also lead to a wide variety of dental problems over time. It is crucial to replace missing teeth promptly to restore normal oral health and function, preventing issues such as tooth shifting and bone deterioration. Dr. Sushma Halthore, Dr. Rashi and Dr. Milena Narsesyan offer prosthetic dentistry to replace your missing teeth and give you back a healthy, beautiful and fully functional smile.
Several tooth replacement options are available to address this concern:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
Dental bridges are an excellent choice for replacing one or more missing teeth in a row. They consist of prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, anchored between dental crowns placed on adjacent natural teeth. Bridges provide a stable and nonremovable solution, restoring both your bite and smile.
Dentures are a versatile option suitable for replacing multiple missing teeth. Two primary types are available: complete dentures, which replace all teeth in an arch, and partial dentures, used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures are removable, making them easy to clean and maintain.
Dental implants offer a comprehensive solution that closely mimics natural teeth. The procedure involves two main components — a titanium implant post, which replaces the tooth root, and a custom-made restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, to cap the post. Implants provide a long-term, fixed solution that looks, feels and functions just like your original teeth.
When you consult with our experienced dentists, we will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and discuss your specific needs and preferences. This will help you make an informed decision about the most suitable tooth replacement option for you.
