Are you missing a tooth or multiple teeth? Are you self-conscious of your smile?
Millions of Americans have at least one missing tooth, which can be caused by numerous factors such as injury, genetics, tooth decay, and gum disease. Missing a part of the root structure of the mouth can also compromise oral health.
Missing Teeth Problems
Not replacing a missing tooth or teeth soon enough can result in multiple problems, such as:
- Loose teeth
- Gum recession
- Speech issues
- Facial sagging
- Shifting teeth
- Bone loss
- Crooked teeth
However, Dr. Gil offers restorative treatments that replace missing teeth with natural-looking results. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures restore the form and function of teeth.
Restorative Treatments for Missing Teeth
Dr. Gil uses CBCT 3D imaging to successfully plan the implantation of restorative treatments. This technology allows him to see where restorations may be placed. Restorative treatments for missing teeth include:
Acting like a tooth root, dental implants replace one or more teeth when inserted into bone tissue. Dental implants consist of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown. Many patients may forget that they have dental implants because they look and feel natural.
Dental bridges restore multiple teeth and can be secured with dental implants for a permanent restoration. This option also uses adjacent healthy teeth to ensure that the bridge is stable.
For patients who are missing arches of teeth, dentures are a great restoration option. Like dental bridges, dentures can be secured with dental implants without the use of messy adhesives.
