New Year’s Resolution: Fix My Smile
Happy 2022! It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is behind us and we have just started a new year. Resolutions and the promise to live a healthier lifestyle is always a popular sentiment during this time of year. We feel that the start of a new year is the perfect time to evaluate the state of your oral health and make any changes or improvements you may have been postponing. One of the best ways to improve your oral health is to replace any teeth you may be missing. Replacing missing teeth can help you avoid complications that can greatly affect your oral and overall health. Continue reading to learn more about the tooth replacement options we offer.
Tooth Replacement Options
There is no better time than the start of a new year to put your oral health first. Making the necessary changes to restore your oral health can help improve your quality of life and give you a life you love. We know it can be very overwhelming to choose a tooth replacement option. We are here to answer any questions you have and give you our recommendations for a replacement that is best for your lifestyle and budget.
This option is a popular and natural-looking replacement option. Although a longer and more complex process, patients love the many benefits this treatment has to offer. This is a multi-step treatment that involves an artificial tooth root being surgically implanted into the jawbone and is completed in our office with a beautiful porcelain crown.
Dentures & Partials
When all of the teeth are missing in a dental arch, we may recommend dentures. Partial dentures are similar, but as the name suggests, they are used when only some teeth are missing. Dentures are not a permanent solution and can be removed for cleaning.
When the tooth root is still intact but the surface tooth is damaged beyond repair, a crown may be used. It can also be used to complete a dental implant. This option is custom made to mimic the natural tooth and covers the entire tooth surface, restoring its shape and function.
Porcelain Fixed Bridge
A bridge can replace several teeth and is anchored to the existing teeth on either side. The replacement teeth look like natural teeth and can last for many years when cared for properly.
If you are interested in learning more about your options for replacing missing teeth or which choice we recommend for your particular situation, we would be happy to help you. Call our office located in The Woodlands to schedule an appointment. We would love to help you restore your oral health this year.
