Missing teeth can cause many negative consequences beyond making someone feel self-conscious about their smile. Simple things like speaking and eating can become much more difficult, and these actions can even turn into a source of pain. At Dentistry By Brand, our team can reliably replace any number of teeth using a variety of custom-made treatments. From single implants all the way to full dentures, no matter what your smile needs to be complete and confident again, our team is ready to provide it. To learn more about your options and start rebuilding your smile today, give us a call.
While a single missing tooth might seem easy to ignore, over time, even minor tooth loss can cause havoc for someone’s oral health. Because the jawbone in the area near the missing tooth will naturally atrophy, this can cause the surrounding teeth to actually shift into the space and misalign, leading to a crooked bite. The exposed gum tissue is also more likely to develop an infection, which can easily lead to even more tooth loss. The best way to prevent all this? Simply replace your teeth, which will protect both your short and long-term oral health.
Dental bridges get their name from the fact that they literally bridge the gap left by missing teeth. Dental crowns are placed over the teeth on either side of the space, and these are used to support one to three prosthetic teeth in a row. Bridges are designed to not only look completely natural, but restore regular chewing function as well, and they can even prevent the remaining teeth from shifting as we touched on above.
For patients who are missing several teeth throughout their mouth or even all of them, custom-made dentures provide a simple but very effective solution. Our dentures are specially-designed to fit each patient comfortably while also having a natural look, so whether someone is smiling or taking a bite of an apple, they’ll be able to rely on their teeth. Partial dentures are perfect for patients with remaining healthy teeth, while a full denture can sit on the gums and bring back an entire row with just one device.
