Do you have one or more missing teeth? Are you looking for a restoration to fill the gaps in your smile? Try dental restorations to replace missing teeth in our Bladenboro, NC dental office. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures not only restore the look of teeth but also support your oral health. These treatments can prevent teeth from shifting and overcrowding. They can also stop further tooth loss or even infection.
Options for Restoring Missing Teeth
Learn more about how each dental restoration is used for patients with different needs for each of their smiles:
- Dental Implants: Made up of a titanium post inserted into the jawbone, dental implants are a restoration that can be used to replace single teeth or your whole smile. Dental bridges and dentures may be supported by dental implants for better bite retention, ease of speech, and natural aesthetics.
- Dental Bridges: Dental bridges can be used to restore consecutive missing teeth. Traditionally, bridges are secured with a dental-crown capped tooth. However, bridges are more secure when supported by dental implants. Fixed bridges that are supported by implants offer longer-lasting results and help improve the bite function.
- Dentures: Dentures are dental prosthetics that can restore full rows or even arches of lost teeth. Although dentures can be removable or fixed, we recommend fixed dentures secured with dental implants. This is because snap-on dentures or dentures that use adhesive do not fully restore the bite. These types of dentures can slip around and often come with dietary restrictions.
