The start of a new year is a great time to evaluate the state of your oral health and make any necessary changes. If you recently lost a tooth due to extraction or need to have a tooth replaced, now is a wonderful time to start the process. A missing or damaged tooth can cause numerous problems with your oral health and can also negatively impact your self-esteem. We have a number of excellent tooth replacement options available that can restore your smile and change your life. Read on to learn more.
Why Replace Teeth?
It can be heartbreaking when you are experiencing dental health issues. Tooth loss and severe decay can impact the way you smile, chew your food, speak, and can really cause issues with self-esteem. No matter if you are dealing with issues due to decay, injury, gum disease, or a medical condition, making a decision to replace a missing tooth can be challenging. We encourage patients to replace missing or damaged teeth as soon as possible. The longer a tooth is missing, the greater the chance you will experience bite issues, teeth shifting, and even jawbone deterioration.
Tooth Replacement Options
Following an evaluation, we work with our patients to create a treatment plan that is well-suited to their lifestyle and budget. We offer a number of tooth replacement options that can restore the function of your smile, such as:
This permanent tooth replacement option is popular due to the many benefits it provides patients. The natural-looking finished product closely resembles your real teeth. This is a multi-step treatment plan that includes implanting an artificial tooth root into the jawbone, followed by the placement of an artificial tooth, such as a crown.
New You Dentures
Long gone are the dentures that you may remember from your past. New You Dentures can enhance your smile, confidence, and overall appearance. This option helps patients look younger and remedies the sunken facial appearance you often see with older dentures.
This option can replace one tooth or multiple teeth and uses the surrounding healthy teeth as a support. A porcelain fixed bridge is anchored to the healthy teeth on either side, creating a beautiful, natural-looking finished product.
Porcelain crowns can be used to repair a damaged tooth that has the root intact and to finish a permanent restoration such as a dental implant. It covers the entire tooth surface and restores the function and shape of the natural teeth.
If you are in need of a tooth replacement, there is no better time to start the process. You can improve your smile and enjoy it for the remainder of the year and beyond. Don’t hesitate to contact our office located in Brunswick, GA to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
