The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can affect the way you and others view your smile. In addition, missing teeth can lead to jaw bone deterioration, infection, and further tooth loss. Patients with missing teeth are at risk for developing gum disease, tooth decay, and other complex dental problems. Replacing missing teeth is not only important for cosmetic reasons but for your overall health as well.

Solutions For Missing Teeth

  • Dental bridge: A dental bridge is can be used for replacing several consecutive missing teeth. A bridge is a custom-designed to fit comfortably and naturally in the mouth. A dental bridge is created using high-grade porcelain ceramic. Traditionally, a dental bridge is supported using the adjacent teeth as anchors for support. A dental bridge can also be secured using dental implants for more support and longevity.
  • Dentures & Partials: Dentures can replace full arches of missing teeth. Dentures are custom designed to fit the frame of the mouth. For extra support, dentures can be fixed into place using dental implants.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are chosen for the durability and natural resemblance to your natural teeth. Dental implants provide long-lasting, durable solution for patients missing one or more teeth. Implants are designed to mimic a natural tooth. Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Dental implants can stimulate natural bone growth for a more stable foundation for a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. We offer full-service dental implant in our Oakton, VA dental office.
