When considering tooth replacement options, there are many factors to consider. First, it is important to determine the number of teeth that need to be replaced. Second, the location of the missing teeth will impact the type of replacement option that is best. One option for replacing missing teeth is dentures. Dentures can be partial or full, and they are typically made out of porcelain or acrylic. Another option is dental implants, which are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once the jawbone heals, artificial teeth are placed on the implants. There are also several bridgework options, which involve using adjacent teeth for support. The specific type of tooth replacement option that is best for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Consult with your Parker Co dentist to see what tooth replacement option is right for you!
A dental implant is a small titanium post placed into the jawbone during a surgical procedure. The implant ultimately supports a replacement tooth, which can be either a dental bridge, crown, or denture. The most significant advantage of dental implants is that they are integrated with your natural bone, making them much more stable than other tooth replacement options. In addition, dental implants help to preserve the health of your jawbone, which can often shrink in size after a tooth is extracted. As a result, dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement option for many people. If you are considering dental implants, our experienced dentist can provide you with more information about the procedure and help you decide if it is the right option.
A dental crown is a routine dental treatment that protects teeth that may be weakened from a large filling or root canal. The goal of a crown is to save a tooth from a fracture. Often, a tooth with an extensive filling is one step away from becoming a dental emergency. Placing a dental crown over the tooth restores the function and strength of the tooth. In addition, it helps improve the smile’s aesthetics by covering up any misshapen or discolored teeth.
Crowns are made from a variety of materials, including porcelain and ceramic. They are custom-made to match the natural teeth’ color, shape, and size. The procedure for placing a crown typically takes two office visits. Dr. Green will prepare the tooth during the first visit by removing any decay or damaged tissue. An impression of the tooth will then be made, which is used to create the custom-made crown. The crown is then placed on the tooth during the second office visit. Once in place, it will help restore the smile’s function and appearance.
