Healthy teeth are the most crucial part of a beautiful smile. If you’re missing one or more of these smile-makers, you should know that tooth replacement is mandatory for your oral health. Those gaps can do more than lower your self-confidence; they also inhibit your ability to eat, speak and smile — and missing teeth eventually lead to significant bone loss. Fortunately, you’ve got some wonderful options in replacement from Dr. Koveos at Salisbury Dental Care. We can help you replace those missing teeth in Salisbury in 2016!
A wealth of tooth replacement options in Salisbury
At Salisbury Dental Care, we know that no two mouths are the same — and what works well for one patient may not be so great for the next. That’s why we focus on offering a variety of options in tooth replacement. From traditional dental implants to partial dentures, we’ve got a number of services to meet your unique needs. Keep reading to learn a little bit more about each one.
Salisbury dental implants
Dental implants offer by far the most comprehensive tooth replacement. That’s because nothing else replaces the missing tooth and its root — a crucial step to securing your new tooth replacement. Tiny posts made of titanium, dental implants are surgically placed into the space left by each missing tooth. After a period of four to six months, the new devices have fused with the bone and are ready to receive the prosthetic tooth.
While the total treatment time for dental implants can seem significant, the benefits of this whole-tooth replacement are numerous. Patients who have their teeth replaced with dental implants enjoy a better fit, improved jaw health and the fact that, when cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.
If traditional dental implants aren’t the best option for you, you’ll be delighted to learn about the All-on-4 bridge, which replaces one or several missing teeth on as few as four dental implants. The All-on-4 bridge provides the security you want, meaning you can smile, eat and speak with complete ease once again.
Dentures in Salisbury
Patients missing all of their teeth can find a wonderful replacement with dentures. Either supported by dental implants, suction or a denture adhesive, full dentures replace the entire row of top or bottom teeth. Partial dentures are also available for patients who are missing only a few teeth.
Dr. Koveos can use mini dental implants to support top or bottom dentures. Just like the name implies, mini dental implants are smaller than the traditional sort — but they still provide all the stability your denture needs. Mini dental implants can support snap-on dentures, too, which fit securely into place like a missing puzzle piece. Support from dental implants means you’re free from denture pastes or adhesives, but you don’t have to commit to the full cost and investment in time required by traditional dental implants.
