Most dentists recommend that patients replace their missing teeth as soon as possible to avoid developing a more complex dental problem. When the tooth is lost, the jawbone begins to deteriorate over time, which may limit the number of tooth replacement options available for your smile. Knoxville, TN restorative dentist Dr. Pamela Cain offers a full range of tooth replacement options to patients in need. Dr. Cain will consider your cosmetic goals, overall oral health, and your budget before deciding what tooth replacement options will best suit your needs.
Replacing Missing Teeth
During your visit, Dr. Cain will perform a comprehensive exam to carefully examine your mouth, teeth, gums, and jawbone. Dr. Cain can address any abnormal findings and provide the appropriate treatment before replacing your missing teeth. Once the comprehensive exam is complete, Dr. Cain may suggest dentures, a dental bridge, or a dental implant depending on what will best suit your dental needs.
Treatment options for tooth replacement:
- Dental implants: dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants can support a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. Dental implants are one of the most durable, natural-looking replacement options.
- Dentures: cosmetic dentures are used to replace the top, bottom, or both rows of missing teeth. Dentures can be a natural looking, functional replacement option.
- Dental bridges: a dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Traditionally, a dental bridge relies on neighboring teeth for support. However, for a more stable solution, a dental bridge can be supported using dental implants.
Finding the right tooth replacement option is essential to your confidence and your oral health. Dr. Cain will work closely with each patient to ensure they get the dental care they need.
