Replacement teeth are an important and common need, especially as people get older. Genetics, poor oral hygiene, and accidents are just a few of the many reasons people need to look into solutions for their teeth. Our team at Lovett Dental Cinco Ranch offers a range of options to help you to get the new smile you desire. Depending on your specific needs, your health, and your goals, you may find it is easier to get tooth repair than you thought.
Replacement Teeth – Knowing What You Need
There are a variety of options available for those who need replacement teeth. If your tooth is still secure in place but has a chip or crack, tooth repair may be an option. Dental veneers can work to hide chips as well. There are some situations where can provide services to remove bacteria and infections to help save a damaged tooth as well.
If your tooth has already fallen out, it may be time to consider replacement teeth. Here are a few options we can offer to you for this.
Dental Implants Offer a Solution
One of the best solutions for replacement teeth is the use of a dental implant. An implant offers key benefits, such as a strong, durable hold and the ability to have a very natural-looking artificial tooth in its place. It can be custom designed to match your other teeth even down to the right shade or color. Dental implants are embedded in the jawbone. Then, a crown or bridge is added to the top of it. It functions much like a natural tooth and allows you to speak and chew naturally.
If you have numerous missing teeth, you may benefit from dentures. Partial dentures are ideal for replacement teeth for those who want a simplified solution. We often recommend implant-supported dentures as these can create a much more stable permanent solution for you. It also gets rid of any slipping that you may have with traditional dentures. They are also more comfortable than older models of dentures.
A dental bridge is anchored on both sides, either by other teeth or by dental implants. There is a crown placed in the opening of your missing tooth. This method is beneficial to those who have a desire for a healthy smile, but may not need a full set of artificial teeth just yet.
