Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Before treatment, Dr. Patel will assess your teeth and gums to determine which option is right for you. She offers these restorative treatment options to patients:
Single missing teeth or whole arches of teeth can be replaced utilizing dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post which is inserted into the jawbone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which the post fuses to tissue, a permanent abutment and dental crown are added for a permanent restoration.
Dental bridges are used to replace one or more teeth. This option can be removable or secured in place with dental implants. Dental bridges can also utilize surrounding natural teeth to secure and replace consecutive missing teeth. Further tooth loss can be prevented with this solution.
Multiple teeth or the upper and lower arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures or partial dentures. Like dental bridges, dentures can be removable or secured by dental implants. Many patients also find that it is easier to bite and chew food with these dental restorations.
