There are many situations that may arise in which you may experience the loss of one or more teeth. When this happens, it is critical that you work with a dentist to replace the teeth as soon as possible. There are several reasons for this. If teeth are not replaced immediately, patients may experience shifting of the existing teeth, leaving several gaps along the dental arch. Patients will also notice changes in the way they eat and speak. By replacing missing teeth, patients can maintain a healthy, beautiful smile and reduce the risk of other complications.
How Can I Replace Missing Teeth?
At Montefiore Medical Center, patients with missing teeth have a wide range of options for replacing them, ranging from removable dentures and fixed bridges to dental implants.
Dentures are generally the least expensive option, but they can be uncomfortable, especially if you eat certain foods or speak for long periods. Fixed bridges involve having your natural teeth filed down to create space for crowns supporting your new artificial tooth. This means that both the surrounding natural and replacement teeth need special care and attention over time.
Implants also replace individual teeth with artificial ones that can withstand biting forces without causing problems for your other natural teeth. Unlike dentures and bridges, implants do not require changes to existing teeth. Plus, they tend to last longer and require less maintenance.
If you are in need of a replacement tooth and are considering your options, it is important to discuss the best choice for your particular needs with an experienced dentist at Montefiore Medical Center. We will help you find the best possible solution for restoring your smile!
