WHY CHOOSE MDRN DENTAL TO REPLACE MISSING TEETH?
What if I Do Nothing?
“You can’t even tell I’m missing a tooth,” some patients may say after looking in the mirror. “Do I really have to replace it?” Unfortunately, long-term tooth loss has several consequences to it, the major one being bone loss. Without the proper stimulation, your jawbone can start to deteriorate, which is why many older patients who’ve lost teeth develop a hunched facial appearance. This process can also negatively impact the health of nearby teeth and increase your overall risk for more tooth loss in the near future. So why not explore the options available to you with our team? You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain!
Dental bridges are sturdy, customized prosthetics that are designed to fill in the gap left by missing teeth. They are permanent, attractive, and do not have to be taken out daily like a denture. Traditionally, they’re anchored in place through the use of dental crowns, which fit over adjacent natural teeth; however, this technique does require these teeth to be adjusted and minimized. A healthier, longer-lasting option is using dental implants instead, which provide optimal support to the new bridge while also preserving oral health in a conservative fashion. Once in place, your bridge will bring back much-needed biting strength and also prevent any unwanted shifting of other teeth.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures have been around for hundreds and even thousands of years in some shape or form, and today’s modern versions are more attractive and comfortable than ever before. Dr. Stapleton offers both full prosthetics for replacing entire arches of lost teeth and partials that can fill in several gaps at once. Traditional dentures are removable in nature and will rest atop the gumline. When possible, our team recommends implant-retained dentures for improved permanence and stability.
When determining the most lifelike and long-lasting tooth replacements, dental implants are definitely undefeated! Unlike more traditional services, this state-of-the-art service actually rebuilds the entire natural tooth, starting with the root that’s entirely hidden under the gum tissue. The final result is virtually seamless and even supports continuing oral health by successfully preventing gradual jawbone deterioration – a common threat following tooth loss. Contrary to misconceptions, receiving dental implants is often completely pain-free with minimal recovery time. You can feel back to normal the very next day!
