Restorative Treatments for Missing Teeth
There are multiple treatments that can be used to restore missing teeth. Before treatment, we will take your budget, goals, and oral health into account. Then one of these solutions may be chosen:
Acting like replacement tooth roots, dental implants can be used to restore one or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are created from titanium posts which fuse to the jawbone over a period of 3 to 6 months. After this period, an abutment and permanent dental crown are attached to the post.
For one missing tooth or multiple consecutive missing teeth, dental bridges can be a great choice. Dental implants can also be used in conjunction with dental bridges for a long-lasting restoration.
Like dental bridges, dentures can be secured with dental implants for a more permanent restoration. Dentures are best used for patients who are missing whole arches of teeth.
