Our Solutions for Replacing Multiple Teeth in a Row
Often the choice in which dental restoration is used will come down to preference and budget. While dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement, it isn’t always a viable option for a person’s budget. However, patients shouldn’t be discouraged; there are options available that can fit their needs while delivering natural results. Take a look at a few of the options we have available for replacing missing teeth along with some of their benefits.
Dentures can be either a full set or partial depending on the patient’s specific needs. They can accommodate multiple missing teeth on opposite sides of the arch, using brackets on remaining teeth for support, in instances of a partial denture. Full dentures replace an entire arch and are secured with glue; you will need to apply the glue each time you put them in.
Bridges are used to replace several teeth in a row and are fixed into place. For those that have healthy teeth on both sides of the gap, this can be an excellent solution. Bridges contain crowns that are bonded together and supported by the adjacent teeth. They offer a natural appearance, and for most patients forget they even have them placed. Bridges can be used with your natural teeth, or be held in place with dental implants, which are called, a dental implant supported bridge.
Dental implants are titanium posts that placed into the jaw bone. These provide incredible strength for supporting crowns, bridges, and dentures. For one or two missing teeth, a single implant will be used for each missing tooth. Typically a crown or bridge will be used in these situations. Attached to the implant is an abutment, which is what the restoration is attached too. The implant is not what you will see; it is merely the anchor for the artificial tooth. Dental implants are considered safe and provide a permanent solution to missing teeth.
All-On-4 Dental Implants are used to restore a full arch of your smile. This is a cost-effective, long-term solution to replacing all your missing teeth. Four implants will be placed in the jawbone, and a special denture is secured to the abutments. Patients enjoy the benefit of not having to use messy adhesives to secure their dentures. Because the all-on-four dental implants denture doesn’t rest on the jaw bone, there is minimal bone loss and virtually zero discomfort.
Are You Embarrassed by a Gap in Your Smile?
Most patients who have a gap in their smile consider it a flaw, an imperfection. Because of these feelings, it can translate into a loss of confidence. Perhaps you have noticed being less outgoing in social situations or smiling not as big as you used to, and it all could stem from missing teeth. But the good news is, you don’t have to live with a smile you are unhappy with – there are solutions available with Soundview Family Dental. Schedule a consultation today and talk with our dentists about your specific situation. We will go over the possibilities to help you get a natural smile; one you can be thrilled to show off.
Restore Your Smile for Better Appearance and Function!
You will also notice improved function for eating and speaking, depending on where your teeth are missing and what replacement option you choose. Many restorations will allow for a strong bite for the back teeth, which means you can enjoy foods you may not have been able to eat for a while.
