I have missing teeth. How can you help?
Replacing missing teeth is important for your oral health and your self-confidence. If you are missing a tooth, you may also have problems chewing or speaking clearly.
At the office of Dr. Joe Arcadipane, we do have options for replacing your missing teeth:
Dental implants are a full replacement tooth that includes an artificial root. This creates a secure, stable foundation for the restoration that will be attached to it. The restoration may be a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on your needs.
Bridges are made up of an artificial tooth held in place by dental crowns attached to adjacent teeth. Until dental implants became popular, bridges were used for many years as an effective option for filling the space left by a missing tooth.
Dentures today are a vast improvement over the artificial-looking "false teeth" your grandparents may have worn. Modern dentures not only restore function, but they also fit better and actually enhance your appearance.
There is no single solution for tooth replacement that is right for everyone. There’s a lot to consider when looking for the best solution that fits your needs. Budget, time constraints, and even lifestyle should all be part of the decision.
If you have missing teeth and are ready to restore your smile, please call our Eynon dental office. We will be happy to discuss your tooth replacement options or to set up an appointment to start your treatment today
