Types of Replacement Options You Have for a Single Missing Tooth
Posted on 3/20/2019 by ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center
When you have a tooth that has problems the sooner you get it fixed the process to correct the problem will typically be less intrusive and also less expensive. Teeth can be filled and even rebuilt with very good and long-lasting results. The longer you wait to take care of the problem, whether it is decay, a crack, or a chip, the more we will have to do to fix. If you wait too long, you increase the chance that we won't be able to save the tooth at all. In that case, you will be facing an extraction. Of course, this means you will have a missing tooth. That, in turn, can cause problems with a bone loss in your jaw, and over time, the alignment of the rest of your teeth. The good news is that you have several options to replace your missing tooth. So, What Are the Options? The most permanent and best option is a dental implant. With this option, your tooth is replaced and permanently installed in the missing place. A post is inserted into your jaw and a tooth is constructed, matched to the color of the remaining teeth, and attached to the pole. With this option you can treat it just like a real tooth, it needs no special maintenance, and no one will ever know you have the implant. This is, however, the most intrusive and expensive option. A second option is a dental bridge. With this option, the teeth on either side of the bridge are trimmed to fit the tooth and are used to anchor this tooth. Before implants, these were referred to as permanent dentures or false teeth. They are less expensive and invasive, but require maintenance. The final option is a removable partial denture. This is the least expensive option. It is a dental appliance like a retainer, but has a tooth attached to it. The tooth replaces the missing tooth and you remove the appliance to clean it. If you want to find out more, give our office a call!...
