- Difficulty chewing
- Crooked teeth
- Speech issues
- Tooth decay
If you have noticed that you suffer from any of these dental conditions and believe they may stem from your missing teeth, call our office for treatment today at (215) 261-7392.
Treatments for Missing Teeth
Several treatments may need to be undergone before lost teeth are replaced. If you have crooked teeth, we offer clear braces. Tooth decay caused by gum disease may be treated through periodontal therapy. Then one of these treatments may be chosen for you:
One or multiple missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which the post fuses to tissue, the implant is fitted with a dental crown. Dental implants act as new tooth roots and help improve the tooth structure.
Several consecutive missing teeth are often replaced by a dental bridge. Dental bridges can be removable or secured by dental implants. This solution allows patients to easily bite and chew and ensure that the tooth structure stays intact.
Dentures and Partials
Whole arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures. Full and partial dentures are similar to dental bridges in that they can be secured with dental implants for a more stable and permanent restoration.
