What Happens if I do Nothing?
While a single missing tooth might be easy to ignore, after enough time, it can lead to major problems. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone in the area naturally starts to shrink, which can affect the surrounding teeth by causing them to shift and loosen. This can lead to a misaligned bite, and the exposed gum tissue is much more likely to develop an infection as well. Rather than waiting for all of this to inevitably happen, it’s best for patients to have their teeth replaced as quickly as possible.
A dental bridge is a type of prosthetic we can use to replace a single tooth or up to 3 consecutive teeth in a row. The new teeth are held firmly within the smile using two dental crowns placed on either side of them. Bridges can not only restore a smile’s natural appearance, but they can prevent the neighboring teeth from shifting out of place as well. They can also help restore balance to the bite for easy chewing.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Modern-day dentures consist of ceramic teeth attached to an acrylic base that’s designed to resemble gum tissue. They fit into the mouth using small metal clasps or natural suction, and at Clear Coast Dental, they are always custom-made to ensure the ideal look and fit. For patients with a few remaining teeth, a partial denture can help fill in the gaps like the missing piece of a puzzle. Alternatively, a full denture can instantly bring back an entire row at once.
Dental implants are truly unique in the world of dentistry because they are the only treatment that replaces the root of a tooth as well as the crown. This gives them the same 2-part structure as real teeth, and the end result is the next best thing to nature from both a functional and an aesthetic viewpoint. With them, our team can bring back any number of teeth for a lifetime to come, as they are often able to last for 30 years or more. For patients who are serious about addressing their tooth loss, dental implants are the best solution dentistry has to offer.
