Replacing missing teeth in the mouth is vital to restoring the tooth's functionality and the aesthetics of the smile. Several treatments are offered at a dental practice to replace the missing teeth, a few of which has been listed below.
At Prosthodontics Atlanta, the dentists offer a variety of dental treatments to restore their teeth. Each treatment is designed to enhance the appearance of the smile.
Dental implants are small titanium rods that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They function as a tooth roots to provide a permanent base for replacement teeth.
Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, a row of missing teeth, or a full arch of missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures and bridges provide a secure, permanent tooth replacement option. The implant or post becomes fused to your jawbone through osseointegration. This fusion is what provides dental implants with amazing stability. Your dental team will place a handcrafted restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture on top of the dental implant to complete your restoration.
Dental bridges are one of the options to replace missing teeth. They are composed of one or more false teeth, called pontics, fused between two dental crowns. These crowns are placed over the teeth on both sides of the gap. The crowns, also called abutments, serve as anchors to hold the dental bridge.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. These dentures are molded to fit your mouth and can be made of acrylic, porcelain, or a combination.
There are two types of dentures:
1. Full dentures: These replace the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both.
2. Partial dentures: These replace one or more natural teeth, but not all of them.
