Tooth Replacement in Marietta, GA
Losing a tooth can be tough, especially when it is a noticeable position of the mouth. While many people believe that their smile is the only thing that changes, your oral health could shift dramatically due to losing a tooth. Your teeth work together as a unit, so Engineered Smiles works hard to preserve your teeth however possible.
If you’ve already lost a tooth, or if saving the tooth is not an option, there are several ways you can replace the tooth and avoid further dental issues developing.
Dental implants are growing in popularity due to their permanency as well as how well they improve the functioning of your teeth and how long they last. Implants are surgically inserted into the gums, and they stay there, healing and bonding to your jawbone. They’re sturdy, stable, comfortable, and function like normal teeth. You brush and floss them to keep them healthy and continue to visit your dentist twice a year to maintain and keep them clean.
Bridges are another solution for replacing any teeth that are missing in the mouth. They function as the name implies, bridging the gap by attaching a crown onto existing teeth and connecting them to a fake tooth, or pontic, to fill in the vacant area. They don’t get removed, so there’s no need to worry about sleeping in them.
Removable Partial Dentures
To replace your teeth, removable appliances can be used that are worn during the day and taken out at night during sleep. They differ in their design, but they will be fitted to your mouth so that you can wear them comfortably. They’re less costly, usually require no surgery, and your existing teeth will only need to be altered slightly in order for them to fit.
