What Happens if I Do Nothing?
Perhaps your missing tooth can’t really be seen, so is it OK to just leave it alone? Unfortunately, untreated tooth loss only tends to lead to more tooth loss. The remaining teeth will eventually shift out of place and misalign, and the exposed gum tissue is much more likely to develop an infection. Every single tooth in your mouth matters, so it’s important to replace any as soon as they go missing, otherwise you’ll find yourself dealing with much bigger issues down the road.
If you are missing just one or even up to three teeth in a row, a dental bridge can do exactly what its name indicates—bridge the gap. Dental crowns are positioned on either side of the prosthetic to secure the replacement teeth within the mouth, creating a firm fit you can always trust. Our bridges are designed for every patient to look completely natural while also being strong enough to stand up to normal chewing forces.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you are missing several teeth throughout your mouth or even an entire row, the right denture can replace them all at the same time. Our dentures consist of high-quality ceramic teeth affixed to a gum-colored acrylic base, creating a prosthetic that is both strong and amazingly natural-looking. They can be designed to fit among any remaining teeth or sit directly on the gum tissue, and for patients who want an even better hold, they can also be anchored with dental implants.
Your teeth are actually made of two main parts, the root and the crown, and dental implants are the only treatment available today that actually replaces both. This makes them extremely stable, enabling patients to eat whatever they want without worry, plus they have a look that blends easily into any smile. At Maxwello Dental & Orthodontics, we can use implants to replace everything from a single tooth to an entire mouthful of teeth, and unlike other dental offices, we’re able to complete the full procedure under one roof to save you time and money.
