Belleville Dental Care has many tooth replacement options to help patients regain a healthy, attractive, and functional smile.
The first step is to read through this comparison of three of the most popular options. The next step is to see Dr. Whyte for a consultation. This will allow us to take a look at oral health and figure out which treatment options might be most suitable for you.
A bridge is a tooth replacement option that requires filing down adjacent teeth to provide adequate space for your replacement teeth much like a small bridge. Before placing a bridge, natural teeth must be free of tooth decay and structurally sound to ensure that the bridge would be strong and stable. This option remains in place until removed by a dentist.
This tooth replacement option consists of a whole arch of replacement teeth anchored into a base of an acrylic material that matches gum tissues. Dentures are pushed into place against the gums and can be both put in and removed by the patient.
When patients choose dental implants, they will get a foundation of titanium tooth roots that are permanently attached to the jawbone during a surgical procedure. Once healed, the post pieces fuse with the bone to make for a strong anchor for a natural-looking replacement tooth. This option is permanently in place and can only be removed by additional surgery.
Where to Begin
We recommend starting with a consultation where we will discuss your options in detail and answer any questions you may have. Some considerations that patients will need to take into account are:
- If supplemental procedures are needed
- Budgetary constraints
- Health condition
- Condition of gums
- Time constraints
- Aesthetic concerns.
