Options for Missing Teeth

Options for Missing Teeth

Are you missing one or more teeth? It can have a noticeable impact on many aspects of your life if you find yourself without some of the teeth that make up your beautiful smile. The good news is that there are a number of options for missing teeth, all of which can restore your confidence, restore your bite functionality and of course restore your smile.

What happens if missing teeth are not replaced?

Get results you love

Whether the tooth has been lost due to decay or damage, the results are still the same. You’re going to find yourself with a gap between otherwise healthy teeth. If you’re not missing front teeth, it can be tempting to ignore those that are missing from the back of your mouth.
The problem is that teeth have a tendency to shift when they are given opportunity to. That space that has been created between these otherwise healthy teeth will start to be encroached upon by your other teeth. This can lead to a host of additional concerns.
Damage and decay can be seen on these shifting teeth as they grind up against each other. With teeth that are now out of alignment, your bite can be altered. This can lead to additional wear and tear on teeth as you chew your food.
Another concern is that missing teeth can also lead to bone regression beneath the gum. When we chew and apply pressure to our teeth and the bone in our jaw, it encourages healthy continued growth of the bone. Without that pressure on the gum, the bone will recede away. This can cause a number of issues, including altering your physical appearance as your face starts to sag due to the loss of bone.
There are no good reasons to avoid replacing missing teeth. At Crown Dental we have a number of options for missing teeth, to suit every dental health and individual need.

What is the procedure for replacing missing teeth?

Wondering how to replace missing teeth is something patients have concerns about. The first step is to meet with your dentist and get a thorough examination. At this point you will be able to work with your dentist to determine the option that will work best for your oral health and of course for your budget.

The health of your gums will need to be evaluated, particularly if it has been some time since the teeth have been lost. If there is bone regression, you may need to have a bone graft done before you are able to be a good candidate for dental implants.

What are the options for missing teeth?

The dental options for missing teeth will depend largely on where you are missing teeth, how many teeth are missing and how long it has been since the natural teeth were extracted or lost.

  • Generally speaking, the options for missing teeth are bridges, dentures and dental implants. They each have their benefits and potential downsides.
  • Bridges are useful when you need to effectively bridge the gap between teeth. They are a dental prosthetic made to fit your mouth and made to fit over the healthy teeth that are next to the gap.
  • If you do not have many healthy teeth, dental implants can be used to provide a sturdy base for the bridges. Bridges can be used to replace several teeth. They can be both fixable and removable, based upon your needs.
  • Dentures are prosthetics that can replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth. They can be removable or can be anchored by implants. The options that work best for you will be dependent on the overall health of your mouth.
  • Dental implants serve as permanent artificial roots to replace missing teeth. The titanium post is surgically inserted into the gum. From there the bone in the jaw will fuse to the titanium post, to offer a permanent root for a prosthetic or crown.
  • The best way to determine which of these options for missing teeth will work best for you is to meet with your dentist.

    I was always scared of the dentist, but not anymore. I received my crowns at Crown Dental, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The treatment was pain free, the team made me at ease during the process. I can't stop smiling and showing my perfect teeth.

    Done, two teeth filling here. Second one they had to redo because of their fault. During that second time I had to ask to stop drilling several times, because my jaw started uncontrollable spasms. After this rework pain became unstoppable and I had to remove nerves during vacation (spent 3 days for that). That doctor admitted that both fillings were made without the cofferdam, for cavities under them to grow and need to be redone. Also they've missed a big smelly cavity next to that tooth even while having 3!!! X-rays of that area. I don't recommend doing fillings there, because you will need to return soon for their upsale of veneer or expensive nerve removal. Also they are not cheap by any means.

  • Myself and my family has seen Dr. Erika Barta regularly. Crown Dental helped our family in many ways, we always attend for regular check-ups and cleanings. And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.

  • I was very lucky to come across Crown Dental 8 years ago. While other dentists were offering extremely complicated and unaffordable treatments, Erika came up with a much simpler and affordable solution to my issues. I have been going to Crown Dental all these years and have got all my dental work done there: crowns, extractions, cleanings and check-ups... I would definitely recommend Erika and her team in Crown Dental to anyone looking for a top quality, reliable and friendly dentist.
