Tooth loss is a very serious dental problem, both aesthetically and functionally. The good news is that you don’t have to live with tooth loss forever. Our Glendale dentists offer a number of high-quality, attractive, and patient-friendly tooth replacement options to help you smile confidently again. In this short article, we are giving you some more information about tooth replacement treatments; we hope that this info helps you begin to consider what type of restorative prosthetic might be right for you!
As you may already know, historically, tooth loss has been treated using dental prostheses like dentures and bridges. These tried and true restorative solutions have come a long way over the years. Our dental team provides bridges and dentures that are customized to suit the patient’s appearance and dental structure. These replacement teeth fit comfortably and look exceptionally natural.
Additionally, our team is can permanently ground dental prostheses into the patient’s jawbone using strategically placed dental implant roots. These titanium roots hold these dental appliances in place, and help to support surrounding jawbone tissue. Patients love implant-stabilized dentures because they are simple to care for, and they look and feel natural.
Another tooth replacement option is the individual dental implant. This treatment actually mimics the structure of the patient’s natural tooth. Every dental implant has a titanium post for a replacement tooth root—this post is then capped with an abutment and a customized restoration. Because dental implants are completely customizable, they are shaped, sized, and shaded to suit the individual patient. Once in place, dental implants stay put permanently, and you’ll care for them as you care for your existing smile.
You have options when it comes to restoring and rebuilding your smile, and our Glendale dental implant dentists are here to help you weigh the pros and cons of each. Give us a call to get started with a personal consultation!
