About Missing Teeth
If you’re missing one or more teeth, it can greatly alter the appearance and function of your mouth and face. Missing teeth are commonly associated with oral bone and tissue loss, and spaces left by missing teeth may eventually cause nearby teeth to move out of position, changing your bite and your ability to chew. Luckily, there are tooth replacement options that can greatly reduce the damage caused by missing teeth, while restoring your smile and supporting your mouth and jaw.
Treatments for Patients with Missing Teeth
Whether you’re missing one or several teeth, our dentists will help you determine what options will best address your restorative dental needs. From removable restorations to permanent implants, at Dental Associates of New England we offer many treatments designed to give you a healthy, attractive smile.
When a patient is missing one or more teeth and wants the most advanced, permanent solution for replacement, dental implants are an ideal treatment method.A dental implant is a natural-looking way to replace a missing tooth, and can be used in combination with a single tooth restoration, a dental bridge, or denture. During the dental implant procedure, a medical-grade titanium rod is surgically placed in the jawbone. The implant fuses with the bone over time, and becomes a durable replacement for natural tooth roots.
An effective treatment for patients with one or more missing teeth, dental bridges can fill many different gaps, in both the front and back of the mouth. Anchored in place by dental crowns placed on the surrounding teeth, dental bridges can also be used in combination with dental implants for a secure hold. We use top-quality tooth-colored materials to ensure an aesthetically pleasing look. Dental bridges are available in both permanent and removable types to meet any patient’s needs.
Dentures are a great way to mask gaps caused by missing teeth for a beautiful smile. Although older denture models can be uncomfortable to wear, our modern dentures are custom-crafted to provide superior function and appearance and a natural, comfortable feel. Dentures aid in speech and chewing while supporting the muscles of the mouth and jaw. Dentures can be made to replace one tooth or many teeth, and can also be secured with dental implants for excellent sturdiness.
