Although permanent teeth are meant to last for a lifetime, they can be lost because of an injury, advanced gum disease, or another issue. Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Having the tooth or teeth replaced can not only enhance your appearance, it can restore your ability to speak and chew properly. But what are your options? Speak to Dr. Jorgensen about tooth replacement in Gainesville, Georgia.
A dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown attached to either side. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth bordering the missing tooth or teeth to anchor the bridge. A dental bridge can be used to replace one or two adjacent teeth.
If you are missing multiple teeth, our dentist may recommend dentures. These removable appliances can replace a few teeth or all your teeth. Full dentures replace a full set of teeth while partial dentures are used when some teeth remain. Dentures take a little bit of time to get used to, but then speaking and eating normally will be a breeze.
Unlike other tooth replacement options, a dental implant replaces both the root and crown of the tooth. This means that dental implants are very strong and long lasting. These tooth replacements are designed to look and function like natural teeth.
