Whether you are missing one tooth or have multiple missing teeth, it can negatively impact your life in a variety of ways. Some of these negative consequences include bone loss in the jaw, gum disease and infections, bite misalignment, difficulty speaking and chewing, and feeling self-conscious about smiling. Fortunately, there are solutions available to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) with natural-looking results that can restore oral health and dental functionality. At Beauty and the Teeth Dental, our extensively trained dentist in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Diana Tadros, works closely with her patients to determine the best tooth replacement option for their needs. Keep reading below to learn how to achieve your long-term smile goals.
As one of the optimal choices for look, feel, and longevity, dental implants can be an ideal option for those missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire arch of missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to act as the artificial tooth root that forms a base for an artificial tooth restoration—such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Once the implant is placed, it will take about three to four months for the post to fully fuse into the jawbone, at which point the custom prosthetic tooth or teeth can be placed.
Alternatively, a dental bridge can provide a non-surgical restorative solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge fills the gap left by a missing tooth (or teeth) by using a custom false tooth that is anchored to the two healthy teeth on each side with porcelain crowns.
