Find The Right Solution For You
We’ve mentioned some common problems that we can help your treat in today’s post. Now, we’ll share what you can to for each of them.
Broken tooth — If you have a tooth that is broken or cracked, it’s best to fix it as soon as you are able. A dental crown is often the easiest and most effective option. To get a crown, your tooth will be reshaped to form an abutment. This preserves the healthy part of your tooth and provides support for your crown. Modern crowns look like natural teeth and restore your ability to bite and chew.
Missing tooth or teeth — If are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, we would strongly recommend an implant-supported crown or bridge. For a single tooth, an implant replaces the root of your lost tooth, and the crown restores the appearance and function of that tooth. If need to replace multiple teeth, you can get a few implants to support a dental bridge.
Missing row of teeth — If you are missing an entire row of teeth, then implant-supported dentures are your best bet. This solution can restore your smile and allow you to eat the foods that you love. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures let you eat practically as well as someone with a full set of healthy teeth.
