Complete Your Smile with Tooth Replacement from Dentistry of Bethesda
Nothing can break your smile confidence quite like missing teeth. Not only that, but missing teeth also make it harder to speak, eat, and simply enjoy life the way you used to. Over time, missing teeth can contribute to nutritional deficiencies, cause other teeth to become unstable, and leave you in danger of losing even more teeth. Replacing missing teeth isn’t just an issue of appearance – it’s a health issue as well. Dentistry of Bethesda offers several different forms of tooth replacement, including fixed bridge, dentures and partials, and dental implants.
Let Us Build a Fixed Bridge to Fill Your Gap
Fixed dental bridges provide a tried and tested form of tooth replacement for those who have healthy remaining teeth that can hold this dental prosthetic in place. A single tooth or row of teeth is fabricated to blend with your overall look. This bridge of teeth is then held in place by crowns that fit over your natural teeth on either side of the gap. Your bridge will protect your remaining teeth from damage, restore fullness to your face for a more youthful appearance, and allow you to eat and speak with confidence. Fixed dental bridges offer an excellent conservative tooth replacement option for those who are not candidates for dental implants.
Tried and True: Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partial dentures have been around for a long time. These removable dental prosthetics tend to be the most affordable tooth replacement option. A full denture replaces an entire upper or lower arch, while a partial denture is held in place by clips that can clasp onto the remaining teeth for those who haven’t lost all of their teeth.
If you’re missing some teeth or need to have all of your teeth removed due to damage or decay, the first thing we recommend you do is call us for a consultation. This will allow Dr. Hornstein to help you better understand the unique advantages of each type of tooth replacement. Dentistry of Bethesda can also provide dental implant restorations, another form of tooth replacement that you might want to explore further during your consultation.
