Tooth Replacement Options
If you’ve lost a tooth in an accident or due to decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues, you might want to consider the various surgical and non-surgical tooth replacement options that are available. One of our dentists can help you choose the right option for your oral health, budget, and dental goals.
Today’s Tooth Replacement Options
Dr. Krothapalli is an expert at helping patients determine which tooth replacement solution is the best fit for you. During your initial consultation, he’ll discuss several options, including:
Dental implants are realistic-looking false teeth that are inserted into your mouth and fuse with your jawbone. They are installed through oral surgery and require two appointments, several months apart, to complete. Once they are finished, dental implants serve as a permanent solution to missing teeth and will never need to be replaced.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Tooth Replacement Bridges
Like implants, bridges are considered a permanent repair. Unlike dental implants, they are cemented to adjacent teeth, forming a bridge across the gap where one or more teeth are missing.
Benefits of Bridges
Dentures are a full or partial set of false teeth that fit over your gums to replace your missing teeth. Modern dentures are more comfortable and more natural-looking than ever, making it easy to replace large numbers of missing teeth with one appliance.
