After you have lost teeth, you may feel resigned to having empty spaces in your mouth. However, this is not something that you need to tolerate. When it comes time to look toward recovery, Gentle Dental has your back. There are many options when it comes to replacing missing teeth and filling gaps. You see, when a tooth has to be removed or falls out, the space it leaves can cause your jaw to weaken over time. Instead of allowing this to happen, you can come to our office and discuss your options for replacement.
Your Options After Losing Teeth
When it comes to filling the gaps left behind by missing teeth, Gentle Dental has many options for you. Here you can view a full list of all of our options. Most of these do not relate to filling spaces. However, you may find something that is helpful to you.
An implant is a tooth which is installed in your jaw to replace removed teeth. They are functional and do not come out so that you never have to worry about dentures. However, they require a surgical installation.
A bridge is true to its name. This is placed to bridge the gap between two of your teeth so that your jaw does not deteriorate due to an empty space. It also helps to keep everything aligned properly.
In the case that you have lost many teeth, dentures are still a surefire option. You can receive partial dentures or even dentures which are placed over implants so that you can retain most of the function in your mouth. Whatever you choose, Gentle Dental can be here for you during this time.
