Tooth Replacement Options

There are a variety of tooth-replacement options available. Speak with Dr. Williams to discover which options may be the best choices for your individual needs.

Implants

For those who are missing one or a few teeth, dental implants can be an ideal solution. These are made from strong materials, such as titanium, which can safely be anchored into bone, where they can serve as roots for replacement teeth.

An individual dental implant can be topped with a crown, a pair could be used to support a bridge, and a small number of dental implants can even be used to act as supports for a denture.

To receive dental implants, you must be in good health and have enough bone tissue to support the implant.

Fixed Bridges

Bridges are a replacement option when one or more teeth are missing. Bridges involve a false tooth, known as a pontic, being supported by natural teeth on either side. Typically, this procedure will require treatment of the teeth adjacent to the gap, fitting them for crowns that will support the Pontic.

Fixed bridges can be less expensive than dental implants and still look, feel, and function just like your real teeth.

Removable Partial Dentures

Partial dentures may be an option for those who still have some remaining healthy teeth. These are a removable form of denture that makes use of one of a variety of different clasps to allow them to attach to your remaining teeth.

Partial dentures make it easier to eat and speak and help restore the appearance of your smile. You will likely not wear these 24 hours a day, as Dr. Williams might suggest removing them at night when you sleep and putting them back in the morning.
