Solutions for a Missing Tooth
If you have just had a tooth removed, or you will have one pulled in the near future, you are likely looking for options to fill the gap. While you can choose to do nothing, filling the difference in your teeth is an excellent choice for numerous reasons. While most think appearance is the only reason to have a missing tooth replaced, there are many other reasons it can benefit your smile to have a restoration put in place.
A gap in the teeth can cause shifts. These shifts can create crookedness or bad bites that can only be corrected with orthodontics. By filling the space, you can essentially keep teeth from moving out of position, which can be costly to repair.
At Soundview Family Dental, we can make recommendations as to what restoration would work best for your specific needs. However, we know everyone’s situation is different, just as everyone’s budget is too, which is why we can create a treatment plan tailored to your needs but still gets you the desired results of a fuller smile. We currently offer in our office four different solutions for replacement. These include the following:
Single Tooth Dental Implant with Crown
Dental implants are a terrific choice for creating a full smile after tooth loss. A titanium posts, the implant, is placed directly into the jawbone and acts as the support for the restorative fixture.
For a single tooth, we use a porcelain crown. This mimics the look and
Bridges are another great option to replace a single tooth. If your teeth on either side of the gap are present and in good condition, a bridge may be a more affordable option versus dental implants.
Bridges are fixed into place, cemented to the adjacent teeth. The biggest downside to having a fixed bridge placed is it can damage the healthy teeth you are using as support.
Removable Partial Denture
The removable partial denture is the most cost-effective way of restoring the appearance of your smile. Most insurance companies will cover a portion of these dental appliances.
A removable partial denture is a suitable option for a missing front tooth. They will use the surrounding teeth as anchors for support of the restoration.
Temporary dentures can be used to restore the smile, if a bridge or dental implant is later desired to fill the gap. These are similar to partial dentures by are typically not as sturdy, bulky, or expensive. These are not to be used for long-term results, and we usually use this option for those that are getting bridges or waiting for their dental implant to heal.
Living with a Missing Tooth or Teeth
Missing a tooth can make anyone feel incomplete. When a front tooth is damaged and extracted or has fallen out, it can make you feel embarrassed about your smile. A person could feel less confident in social settings, or not want to be as outgoing. But just because you are missing a tooth doesn’t mean you have to live with a gap in your smile forever.
With missing tooth solutions from Soundview Family Dental, we can give you back your lost confidence and have a better quality of life knowing your smile is beautiful and complete.
