Are you interested in replacing your missing tooth? If so, good for you! It’s best to replace your missing tooth as soon as possible so your smile and oral health don’t suffer additional consequences. When replacing a missing tooth, our dentist, Dr. Scott Timmons, is happy to provide a few options to give you the smile you desire. Those options are:
–Dentures: Dentures can replace all of your teeth or just a few missing teeth in a row. This is possible because of the two different denture options available: complete and partial dentures. This is a removable appliance that can give you the freedom and control you want.
–Dental Bridge: A dental bridge is a permanent restoration that is anchored by dental crowns. Between the dental crowns lies one or more false teeth. The bridge is placed in your smile when your dentist trims the surrounding natural teeth and fits the bridge’s dental crowns over them.
–Dental Implant: A dental implant is also a permanent restoration. Instead of it anchoring to the natural teeth, it anchors to the jawbone. This is possible because a titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone. Then, an abutment is attached to that screw. Finally, a dental crown is placed over the abutment to give you a natural-looking and natural-feeling restoration.
