Dental crowns are used to restore one to three consecutive missing teeth. This will not only improve the appearance of the smile, but it can also restore the patient’s ability to eat and chew their favorite foods. Bridges also prevent the teeth adjacent to the gap from shifting, which stops potential orthodontic issues that can impact the smile and bite from arising.
Dental implants distinguish themselves from other tooth replacement options because they actually bring back an entire tooth from root to crown. Rather than just sitting on top of the gums, a new, titanium root is placed into the jawbone. This serves as the foundation for a patient’s new tooth. This not only makes the restoration extremely strong, but durable as well, as implants have a long lifespan.
Patients missing several teeth, or even an entire row, can benefit greatly from dentures. Full or partial dentures, supported by dental implants or without any, are natural-looking prosthetic teeth that come in a variety of options. The one that is right for you and your mouth depends on your unique situation. Whatever you choose, you will enjoy the benefits of a completely restored smile. If you are having any difficulties with your current dentures, Dr. Makadia can also make them fit better. To do so, he can add mini-implants and make them stable in one to two visits.
