If you are missing one or more teeth and want to renew your self-confidence, try restorative solutions for missing teeth offered at Garner Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Replacing missing teeth not only improves the aesthetics of your smile but can benefit your oral health in the long-run.
Gaps between teeth can cause shifting and overcrowding, which makes it more difficult to clean teeth. Durable restorative options revitalize the function of teeth and gums. Because patients with missing teeth may find difficulty with biting and chewing, a fuller smile balances the bite. Missing teeth treatments offered by Dr. Angela Wingate uses dental crowns that are color-matched to natural teeth to seamlessly blend into your smile. She also ensures that each dental treatment is custom to patients and their specific dental concerns.
Treating Missing Teeth
Before treatment, Dr. Wingate will assess your teeth and gums to help determine which treatment option is right for you and your needs. She offers multiple restorative options, including:
Dental implants are made of titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Following a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which the implants integrate with bone tissue, the posts are capped off with an abutment and dental crown.
Patients who are missing several teeth may benefit more from a dental bridge. Dental bridges can be secured with dental implants and also can use adjacent teeth as support.
Patients with whole arches of missing teeth can benefit from removable or implant-secured dentures. This solution is an especially stable option when used with dental implants because they are made of durable titanium posts.
