Tooth Replacement Options

Posted .

Although permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, they can be lost because of an injury, advanced gum disease, or another issue. Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Having the tooth or teeth replaced can not only enhance your appearance, it can restore your ability to speak and chew properly. But what are your options? Speak to Dr. Jeff Jones about tooth replacement in Dallas, Texas.

Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown attached to either side. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth bordering the missing tooth or teeth to anchor the bridge.

If you are missing multiple teeth, our dentist may recommend dentures. These removable appliances can replace a few teeth or all of your teeth. Full dentures replace a full set of teeth while partial dentures are used when some teeth remain.

Dental Implant
Unlike other tooth replacement options, a dental implant replaces both the root and crown of the tooth. This means that dental implants are very sturdy and long lasting. These tooth replacements are very similar to natural teeth in function and appearance.
