At the Hoover Dental Center, we provide comprehensive tooth replacement treatment to people who are missing one or more teeth. What are some of the reasons why you might be missing one or more teeth, and what are your treatment options?
There are several reasons why you might be missing a tooth. Some of the most common causes include:
If you are missing a tooth, there are replacement options that can help you restore your smile and improve your functionality.
A dental bridge is one option that could help you replace one or several missing teeth in a row. A dental bridge can fill the gap in your smile with one or several artificial teeth. Typically, a bridge is made of two anchor crowns on either side of a false tooth. The anchor crowns are capped over the teeth on either side of the missing tooth and cemented in place, bridging the space left by the missing tooth.
The downside to this conventional bridge is that it requires placing crowns on the surrounding healthy teeth. If you take care of it, it can last for more than ten years, but it is not designed to last forever.
Another treatment option to replace one or more missing teeth is an implant-supported dental bridge. This type of dental bridge is designed to be a permanent replacement option. Some of the benefits of an implant-supported dental bridge include the following:
For all these reasons, we encourage you to reach out to us to see if you are a candidate for a cosmetic tooth replacement with dental implants.
