If you have one or more missing teeth, you may benefit from restorative treatment options. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures are common dental solutions used to replace teeth and improve oral health. But why should missing teeth be replaced, and what benefits do restorative treatments offer?
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Restorative dentistry options offer many benefits to patients with missing teeth. These treatments can:
- Improve speech
- Provide no risk of slippage
- Prevent facial sagging
- Reduce the risk of gum disease
- Provide durability
- Improve chewing ability
If the gaps left by missing teeth are not replaced soon enough, multiple problems may arise:
- Shifting teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Bone loss
- Speech problems
- Facial sagging
- Gum recession
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
Treatments for Missing Teeth
Dental implants can restore one or more missing teeth. They can also be used to secure dental bridges and dentures. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants will offer key benefits for your oral health and quality of life when compared to more traditional options which are often removable. Dr. Weinstock is a leading local implant dentist with advanced training and years of experience in placing all types of dental implants.
Multiple consecutive missing teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge. A bridge is a custom made dental restoration designed to “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth. A dental bridge can restore a patient’s confidence and improve their quality of life. Dental bridges help maintain the natural shape of the smile and are made of high-quality dental materials.
Dentures provide a cost-effective way to replace multiple missing teeth. They are custom made artificial teeth that will replace several or all of your missing teeth and some of the gum tissue. Dr. Weinstock will help you restore the function and health of your smile. Dentures are the traditional method of replacing a full arch or full set of missing teeth. With advancements in dental technology and improvements in the quality of dental materials, dentures are now more natural-looking and better fitting.
