What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?

There are a variety of factors that come into play when considering options for tooth replacement. Everyone has unique needs, and you can be confident that we’ll help you find the solution that fits your oral health needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Dental implants have become the preferred method for replacing teeth for a number of reasons. Unlike bridges or dentures that simply fill the empty space, dental implants actually become part of your jaw structure. When the dental implant process is finished, you will be left with a fully functioning tooth replacement complete with an artificial root and natural-looking dental restoration.

However, dental implants aren’t right for everyone. If this is the case, we can create a durable fixed bridge that will fill the empty space and restore function. If you’re missing a few or all of your teeth, we can discuss the possibility of full or partial dentures. Many denture wearers complain about movement of their dentures. If this is a concern for you, we also have the option of adding some implants to hold your denture securely in place.

The best way to find out what tooth replacement choice is right for you is to call our office and make an appointment for a consultation. There’s a lot to consider, and Dr. Abramowski will take the time to answer your questions and discuss all your options.
