Missing Tooth Replacement Options
With the advancements in dental technology, technique, and materials, tooth replacement is more efficient, more comfortable and natural looking than ever before. Dr. Brown offers a variety of treatment options for missing tooth so that she can personalize your treatment plan so you receive optimal results. While each option has many benefits, dental implants can be used in combination with all options for a more secure restoration.
- Dental Bridge- Affordable and effective, dental bridges are ideal for replacing several consecutive missing teeth. Dental bridges are removable. When used with dental implants, Dr. Brown can secure the bridge for a permanent and long lasting restoration.
- Denture– Dentures have long been the go to for missing teeth. Used for patients who are missing all of their teeth on the upper or bottom jaw. Dentures are now more natural looking and can be better fit for comfort and increased chewing ability. Fixed dentures are even more secure with the use of dental implants.
- Dental Implant- Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jaw. Once healed, dental implants fuse with your natural bone making a stable foundation for a dental restoration. For one missing tooth, a crown may be placed on the implant for a permanent and beautiful dental restoration.
