Replacing missing teeth
Missing teeth leave more than just a gap in the smile. If untreated, they can cause misalignment of the existing teeth, and tooth loss also contributes to bone loss in the mouth. Fortunately, there are many ways that a dentist can restore the smile. Dr. David S. Frey offers these tooth replacement options for patients to consider:
- Dentures – dentures include both partial dentures and full dentures. Partial dentures replace some of the teeth within the dental arch, while a full denture replaces all of them. These appliances are often made with metal and/or acrylic and are created to look as natural as possible.
- Dental bridges – dental bridges are restorations fabricated for a patient to replace one or more teeth in a row. Dental bridges are made of porcelain for aesthetic purposes but are also strong and durable. Bridges are more permanent than a removable partial denture.
- Dental implants – dental implants are titanium posts used within the jaw of the bone to anchor a dental crown, a bridge, or a full denture in place. This versatile restoration is used in many ways to replace one or more teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a smart investment for patients seeking long-term repair.
