Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options
Although they may have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, new advancements in dentistry give conventional dental prosthetics a more realistic appearance and fit. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, we can complete your smile without surgery. They are an affordable solution that can last for an average of 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Crown & Bridge
A crown and bridge are a convenient option to replace 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth. Dr. Do takes an impression of your mouth to create a prosthetic that matches the appearance of your natural teeth. It is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them.
Several missing teeth can be treated using a partial denture. Prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored base, which features a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining natural teeth.
An entire arch is replaced with a full denture. Dr. Do takes an impression of your mouth to create a gum-colored base to hold your replacement teeth. It is attached to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Now, improvements to the impression process and the materials that are used minimize any slipping or irritation.
The Dental Implant Process
Now, over 500,000 people a year are choosing dental implants to anchor their prosthetics to their jawbone. Although it requires oral surgery, it allows you to enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth. After an initial consultation, you are scheduled for oral surgery to strategically place the posts into your jaw. The number of posts needed varies depending on the type of prosthetic you need. After you have healed from your placement surgery, abutments are connected to each post to attach your bridge, partial, or denture.
