Even a single missing tooth can compromise the entire smile. The teeth closest to the gap will slowly shift towards it over time, which can lead to misalignments, a crooked bite, and chronic jaw pain. Patients with missing teeth also have a much higher risk of developing gum disease, which is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss in the US. For your immediate and long-term oral health, replacing any teeth quickly is always the best decision.
A dental bridge gets its name from the fact that it literally uses a series of dental crowns to bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth. The crowns on either side are hollowed out to fit over the remaining teeth, and these are bonded to the replacement teeth situated in the middle. Bridges not only restore a patient’s chewing ability, but their appearance as well, plus they can prevent the teeth shifting we touched on above.
A custom-made partial or full denture from Dr. Mosby can completely renew a patient’s ability to speak clearly, chew comfortably, and smile without a second thought. He can design a prosthetic to fit seamlessly between any remaining teeth or even sit on top of the gums to bring back an entire arch at once. Made from high-quality ceramic and acrylic, modern-day dentures are strong, durable, and much more stable and natural-looking than anything your parents or grandparents might have worn.
Dental implants are the most advanced type of tooth replacement available today. Why? Because they don’t just restore the part of the tooth you can see, but the root structure below the gum line as well. The new teeth are attached to small titanium posts placed within the jawbone, giving them a look, stability, and durability only matched by natural teeth. They can be used to restore any number of teeth and only require regular brushing and flossing to last for 30 years or more.
