What if I Do Nothing?
Doing nothing when a natural tooth is lost may be the path of least resistance – in fact, over 178 million people in the United States are currently missing at least one tooth. However, a long-term incomplete smile can result in potentially serious problems for the patient’s oral health, day-to-day quality of life, and sense of self-confidence.
Bone loss is a common outcome, which often leads to the “hunched” facial appearance that many elderly people develop in later years. Additionally, tooth loss can also increase your risk of experiencing tooth decay and gum disease in other areas of the mouth, which is likely to lead to even more of your one-of-a-kind smile disappearing over time.
At Associates in Dental Health of Haverhill, our dentists are here to help you explore your reconstructive options in plenty of detail. We offer multiple options that will result in attractive, reliable improvements:
Dental bridges are named as such because they literally “bridge” the gap left by one or more missing teeth that used to appear consecutively. Traditional bridges are anchored in place within the mouth through the use of dental crowns which cover adjacent healthy teeth – this means that unlike dentures, bridges are a fixed, sturdy addition to your smile. Alternatively, state-of-the-art dental implants can be paired with bridges for a more secure and healthier result.
At Associates in Dental Health of Haverhill, we highly recommend dental implants as the premier solution to tooth loss because of their state-of-the-art structure. Instead of only restoring the white crown that all of us are familiar with, implants start by recreating the root underneath the gum tissue to provide optimal function, stability, and preservation of healthy jawbone. As a result, your new “teeth” will not only look and feel completely natural, but they should also last for decades. We also utilize a state-of-the-art CT scanner to ensure that every surgical implant placement is precise, safe, and successful for the sake of our patients. By being able to capture three-dimensional X-rays with comprehensive detail, treatment planning is more confident than ever before.
If you have lost all of your teeth or have multiple gaps in your smile that need to be filled, you may want to think about getting fully customized dentures. Whether you need full dentures that sit on your gums with the help of natural suction or partial dentures that stay in place via clasps, you can rest assured that your prosthesis will be carefully designed to provide a natural appearance and a comfortable fit.
