A Secure Option For Bridges And Dentures

Newhall, CA, dentist offers bridges, dentures, implants

Whether you have lost one or several, tooth loss can affect your life in several ways. You may notice changes in your ability to chew some of your favorite foods or have trouble speaking clearly. It may also cause changes to your appearance that may make you feel self-conscious. The team at Newhall Dental Arts in California offers replacement options that can give you a complete smile again after a loss.

Don’t Ignore Tooth Loss

Problems such as gum disease, injury, and other health conditions can cause your teeth to come out. If you begin to notice symptoms such as sore gums or loose-feeling teeth, you should see your dentist as soon as possible. These could be indicators of gum disease which is the number one cause of adult tooth loss. Your dentist can help set up a treatment plan to manage your symptoms and prevent your gums from receding. Accidents and injuries could also cause your pearly whites to come out. If you have harmed a dental structure, visit your dentist as soon as possible for an emergency visit.

Addressing Gaps In Your Smile

There are many types of prosthetics available that can fill the gap in your smile. The type you receive will depend on factors like the severity of loss, your oral health condition, and your specific needs. If you have lost up to three teeth in a row, a dental bridge could be used to mimic your missing dental structures. This fixed prosthetic is supported by crowns on your adjacent teeth. It can help improve your smile’s function and may boost your confidence.

Patients with more severe forms of tooth loss may benefit from dentures. These can be either full or partial depending on your needs. Dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth and improve your ability to chew and smile. This option is removable, and you will take it out to clean and care for. It’s important that you take care of your oral health even if you are missing your pearly whites, so remember to continue seeing your dentist regularly.

Pair This Prosthetics With An Implant

Bridges and dentures can mimic the visible part of your lost tooth, but not the roots that support your jaw and other teeth. To do this, dental implants can be added with your prosthetic. A metal post will be inserted into your jawbone to create a secure base for the crown. Implant-retained dentures will add several posts throughout your smile for a properly balanced base. In our office, we use digital imaging to map out precisely where these posts should be inserted.
