Tooth Replacement

Restorative Dentistry Options

Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options for replacement. While permanent teeth should provide a lifetime of function, it doesn’t always end up that way. They may be lost from an accident, deep cavities, or gum disease. And since teeth start as a full set, even one missing tooth may disrupt the complex function of chewing, the first step in digestion. As teeth slowly lean and migrate into extra spaces, wear and cracking from excessive forces often create escalating problems.

When it’s time to replace missing teeth, whether it’s one or a full set, several options might be available to you. Aberdeen NJ Dental implants often give you the best opportunity to enjoy normal chewing and a full smile, although all therapeutic possibilities deserve consideration.

Dental Implants

If you are missing teeth it is usually important to replace them. Without all of your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime! An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain. It looks like your natural tooth. It's composed of a titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and a tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant.

Porcelain Bridges

Whenever you cruise across a bridge over the water, you're being supported by the same principles that hold a dental bridge. Critical stabilization on each side helps bear the load, year after year. Teeth on either side of a space support a replacement tooth engineered from durable materials and glued into place. While this often serves for many years, the load-bearing teeth may deteriorate after thousands of chewing cycles. In some cases, this leads to more missing teeth. Contact our Aberdeen Dentists today to learn more about how a porcelain bridge can enhance your smile.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a removable, yet natural-looking dental appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth to help restore the form and function of your jaw. Partial dentures are comprised of a metal and acrylic mix, which offers them the power to manage your chewing and speaking needs while also looking natural. Some partial dentures are entirely composed of acrylic; these dentures are less durable and structurally sound, but they may be a viable option for you depending on your circumstances.

full dentures

Full Dentures

Full dentures are a set of custom-made removable tooth replacements. A full denture covers the entire mouth rather than just a portion of it. It is a removable device designed to replace missing teeth and is used by people who have lost all of their teeth. Acrylic is commonly used to make complete dentures. Dentures not only improve the appearance of your mouth (most are incredibly realistic, making it appear as if you have all of your teeth), but they can also make you feel more confident.

There is no bigger coward than me at the dentist. Once I’m there the staff makes me feel safe and that I don’t feel a thing. They really care. That’s why I’ve been a patient for over 25 years.
