The Importance of Replacing Damaged or Missing Teeth
A cracked or severely decayed tooth can cause pain and frustration. Left untreated, the tooth could break and require emergency care. Missing teeth can impair your ability to chew comfortably and speak clearly. Existing teeth can drift out of position and cause problems with the way top and bottom teeth fit together. Jawbone mass begins to diminish where teeth are missing due to a lack of stimulation provided by teeth when you chew.
Your Choices for Tooth Replacement
Whether you need to replace one tooth or several teeth, Dr. Smith will tailor a solution that works for you. He offers high-quality, long-lasting restorations that look and feel natural.
- Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is a restorative solution to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Bridges are fixed in place and secured to healthy existing teeth.
- Dental Implants: A dental implant replaces the tooth root and crown to replicate the appearance of a natural tooth. Dental implants can secure individual implants crowns or a prosthetic containing several teeth. Implants preserve jawbone mass by stopping the atrophy that occurs with missing teeth.
