Replacing Missing Teeth? – You’ve Got Options

Nobody wants to smile only to reveal gaps from missing teeth. Having a full set of teeth is something to be proud of, especially in our senior years when it may feel as though the body is falling apart. Having missing teeth isn’t always due to decay or periodontal disease – as accidents and trauma can also leave a person one tooth lighter. So what options are available to replace a tooth, or teeth that are missing?

Partial Dentures Can Work

Dentures can be frowned upon – being considered a less than ideal option when it comes to replacing teeth and restoring a smile. But the truth is that dentures can be a viable option as long as it’s explained that both a full and partial denture are not fixed solutions – so they won’t perform the same way a fixed restorative option can. Affordable and fast to make – a partial denture can also be esthetically pleasing as the partial fills in gaps with natural looking teeth. If time, budget and ease of use is important to a patient – a partial denture can be a great choice.

Dental Bridges – Closing the Gap

A Dental Bridge is a very popular choice amongst all age groups for replacing a single or several missing teeth. Referred to as a bridge because it ‘spans’ a gap and consists of abutments which are supporting teeth and a pontic(s) that replaces the missing tooth. Made from porcelain and stained to a color that matches a patient’s natural dentition – a bridge can blend beautifully with a person’s teeth and provide the function, durability and stability that comes pretty close to natural teeth. Considered a permanent restoration due to the fact that a bridge is cemented in place – choosing this option to replace teeth wouldn’t be a bad choice.

Dental Implants – They’re Not Just for Hockey Players

General Dentists at Metro Dental in NW Calgary want patients to know that dental implants aren’t just for NHL players and celebrities – anyone can have an implant placed providing they are a suitable candidate. Often placed by General Dentists, Periodontists Oral Surgeons – implants are placed directly the jaw bone – acting as the root of a missing tooth. Once healing has taken place a Family Dentist restores the implant with a crown that looks and performs like a natural tooth. Taking anywhere from three to six months to complete – dental implants may be considered the ‘Cadillac of tooth replacements’ and can be used to replace single or multiple teeth.
