Missing teeth are often a cause of worry, not only because they affect the way you smile, but also because functions such as speaking and chewing can be affected. A number of dental problems such as bone loss and bite issues can also occur due to lost teeth. At the office of Heresi Dental Care, we offer high-quality tooth replacement options for our patients.
Dentures can be fixed or removable replacements for a few or a full set of missing teeth. Depending on whether some or all of your teeth are missing, we may recommend full or partial dentures. If you have a very few natural teeth remaining, we may suggest removing them and opting for a full denture.
Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” when it comes to teeth replacement. They are a strong, fixed and permanent way to replace lost teeth. An implant is a titanium fixture that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of a lost tooth. The implant integrates with the jawbone and becomes a part of your oral structure. A prosthetic such as a crown or bridge can be placed over the implant to act as the top part of the missing tooth or teeth. Our practice offers a variety of implant options such as endosteal implants, which are used to replace a single missing tooth, as well as All-on-4 implants that can be used to replace a complete arch of teeth with only four implants.
