Do you have gaps in your smile? Are you looking for a dental treatment to completely restore your smile? The team at Williamsburg Dental offers restorative dental care for patients missing one or more permanent teeth. Our professional dentists treat patients with missing teeth in our Broomall, PA dental office.
Even if patients are only missing one tooth, they can experience increased dental problems. Bacteria can accumulate at the missing tooth’s socket, which can easily develop into gum disease or tooth decay. Additionally, the remaining natural teeth may shift to close the missing tooth gap. As a result, the teeth can become overcrowded. It is more difficult to clean between overcrowded and crooked teeth. Restoring missing teeth at the root not only prevents these problems but also improves the facial structure, makes it easier to eat and drink, and improves confidence.
Restoring Missing Teeth
We offer implants, bridges, and dentures for patients with missing teeth. Discover more about each of these restorations here:
Implants are small titanium posts that replace teeth at the root. During implant surgery, a surgeon places implants below the gums in the jaw bone. Over time, during a process called osseointegration, the implants fuse with the jaw bone tissue. Because of this, implants are permanent. We always make sure that our patients have enough bone tissue to support their implants and are in good oral health. Implants may support a single crown, dental bridge, or dentures.
A dental bridge replaces multiple consecutive missing teeth. Dental bridges can be secured by adjacent natural teeth. These teeth may be prepared and then covered with a dental crown. However, we recommend dental implants to secure dental bridges for added support. Dental implants support the gum and bone tissue of the mouth. Patients who choose implant-supported dental bridges can bite, chew, and speak with ease. Dental implants ensure that the dental bridge is stable and feels just like natural teeth.
Full and Partial Dentures
Are you missing a row of teeth in different areas of your mouth? Do you have upper or lower arches of lost permanent teeth? Dentures may be the right restoration for you. Partial dentures can replace multiple lost teeth, while full or complete dentures may replace arches of teeth. Traditional dentures use adhesive to stick removable prosthetics to the gums. However, this treatments method does not support a comfortable or stable bite. Traditional dentures can slip around the mouth. Implant-secured dentures make it easier for patients to use their teeth and enjoy a natural-looking restoration.
