Replacing Missing Teeth

What are the best options for replacing missing teeth? The answer depends on a number of factors. How healthy are your gums? What is your budget? Are you looking for a permanent tooth replacement solution, or something more cost-effective? If you have missing teeth, it is important to replace them; leaving spaces in your mouth will lead to issues such as bone loss and “tooth drifting”. Replacing your missing teeth can be done with a number of options, including dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.

Your Restorative Options

A dental bridge is used to replace a single tooth or several adjacent missing teeth. A fixed bridge is fabricated by using supporting teeth, also known as abutment, to hold dental crowns that are connected to the false teeth used to bridge the gap of your missing teeth. A bridge can prevent resorption, which is a natural consequence of tooth loss: the bone that supported the missing tooth shrinks over time and if this process goes on too long, it can lead to difficulty for wearing dentures since there is no longer a good ridge for the denture to sit on.

Dentures & Dental Implants

Dentures can be used to replace an entire row of teeth. You can also get a set of partial dentures to replace only the teeth that are missing. Dentures are an affordable option to replace missing teeth, and are custom-made by Dr. Giovannini to ensure a comfortable fit. Dental implants are one of the most permanent solutions to replacing missing teeth, as a titanium bolt is surgically placed in your jawbone, which eventually fuses to your jawbone, creating a very stable and secure foundation. Dr. Giovannini works with oral surgeons and periodontists to help patients restore their smile through single or multiple tooth replacement. You also have the option of implant supported dentures.
