What are my options for replacing missing teeth?
Replacing your missing teeth can improve your self-confidence and is essential for restoring the health and function to your bite after tooth loss. Options for replacing missing teeth have greatly improved with new advancements in dental technology and the introduction of implant dentistry. Replacing missing teeth is now more natural looking and comfortable.
Drs. Williams, Solberg, and Miller offer restorative options for replacing missing teeth. Our Altamonte Springs, FL dentist office is equipped with the most modern dental technology for more finely crafted treatment plans and precise and lasting results. A comprehensive oral health exam and one-on-one consultation will help your dentist provide you with a list of your options for restoring your missing teeth.
Why Should I Replace A Missing Tooth?
Replacing even a single missing tooth can improve the long-term function and health of your smile. Missing teeth make your smile more susceptible to a wide range of secondary dental concerns and systemic health issues. Without all of your teeth, your jaw bone can begin to deteriorate and collapse resulting in the inability to speak or chew properly.
Patients with missing teeth are more prone to:
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Shifting or loosening of teeth
- Additional tooth loss
- Bone loss
- Facial sagging
Replacing your missing teeth supports a more functional bite and improves your overall quality of life. It is necessary to replace your missing teeth in order to prevent more advanced dental concerns down the road. Patients who choose to replace their missing teeth soon after tooth loss can often avoid the need for additional dental procedures.
Implants & Options for Restoring Your Smile
Dental implants are by far the most natural way to replace a single missing tooth or to restore the smile of an edentulous patient. Dental implants can be used to secure a dental crown, dental bridge or a full denture arch.
The dental implant replaces not only the crown or aesthetic part of the tooth but simulates the entire tooth structure. The implant post acts as a prosthetic root system adding necessary stability and support for the alignment of the bite and function and health of the jaw.
