Tooth Replacement

A set of teeth is sort of like a new car. Bright and shiny in the beginning, but every so often in need of replacement parts. In the case of teeth, sometimes you lose them and need to get a tooth replacement.
People lose teeth for a variety of reasons. Topping the list are gum disease and tooth decay.
Gum disease develops when excessive plaque builds on the gumline and causes gum tissue to become red and swollen. If not treated, bone loss could occur. In the case of tooth decay, food particles left on the teeth encourage the bacteria in the mouth to produce acid, which damages enamel and causes cavities. Both conditions may lead to tooth loss, if they are not treated.

What Are Your Options?

If you lose a tooth, don’t panic. There are a variety of teeth replacement options available to you. Consult your dentist to determine the right solution that will keep you smiling.

There are different options of tooth replacement and they include:
  • Fixed Bridges: A bridge is a fixed device that connects a prosthetic tooth to the adjacent existing teeth in the mouth.
  • Dental implants: These are titanium fixtures that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums. Once they are positioned and integrate into the jawbone, a dentist or dental specialist can mount the abutment to the fixture and then the prosthesis or replacement crown to the abutment.
  • Partial dentures: These consist of artificial teeth and a gum-colored base attached to a metal frame. The frame can be inserted snugly between your natural teeth. In some instances, crowns are placed on the adjacent natural teeth to provide anchors for the dentures.
