What Happens if I Do Nothing?
A missing tooth has various consequences for a person’s appearance, health, and quality of life. It can lead to premature signs of aging, including a changing facial shape and sagging. Furthermore, your risk for future tooth loss goes up as your jaw bone begins to shrink. Basic tasks like chewing become increasingly difficult, especially if you’re missing a molar. Even neighboring teeth will begin to shift in order to compensate for the empty space. Tooth replacement is not only ideal for your looks – it can truly transform the future of your oral health.
If you want a tooth replacement that lasts longer and is more durable than any other, dental implants are by far the best solution and highly recommended by our dental office. While all other restorations only sit on top of the gums, dental implants take it another step further by integrating with your existing bone and gum tissue. By replacing the root and not just the crown portion of teeth, you end up with a more reliable, more natural, and healthier tooth replacement overall.
Dental bridges have been the standard for replacing one or more teeth for quite some time. This sturdy solution combines multiple crowns into one larger restoration and sits on top of existing teeth to fill the gap in your smile. While this option can replace teeth for several years, it also requires the removal of the existing tooth structure. This is so the restoration has a stable foundation to withstand daily biting forces. To avoid this, implant-retained bridges use biocompatible titanium implants instead of existing teeth to anchor restorations. Dr. Giron strongly recommends this more conservative option whenever possible to patients in need.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Compared to the early iterations, full and partial dentures have made significant strides in quality, comfort, and aesthetics. Full dentures are ideal for replacing an entire arch of teeth, while partials are designed to replace teeth on opposite sides of an arch. They are highly customizable, affordable and have the ability to last for several years. While Dr. Giron will make sure that your denture feels comfortable and sturdy, those looking for an even more reliable and health-positive denture should consider an implant-retained alternative.
