Some dental conditions cause extreme damage to the tooth that cannot be treated anymore. The only way to reduce the pain would be to extract the tooth. There are various tooth replacement options that the patient can choose from after the extraction to restore the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the tooth. Tod Anderson DDS family and cosmetic dentistry offer the following treatments to replace their damaged tooth.
- Dental Implant
A dental implant is an ideal treatment for patients who have a missing tooth. It is a dental procedure that offers permanent restoration of a damaged tooth. An implant is a metal post made of titanium that is placed into the jawbone to replace the root of the tooth. The dentist then mounts an artificial tooth over the implant after placing an abutment to complete the procedure. Dental Implants require multiple appointments at the dentistry.
- Removable Partial Denture
Patients who have a few missing teeth in their mouth can opt for a removable partial denture. It is custom-made according to the requirements of each patient. It is clasped into the area of missing teeth, which provides a quick replacement for the missing teeth. Removable partial dentures are an affordable choice that provides a simple application in the mouth.
- Complete Denture
A patient who has lost all their teeth can choose complete dentures to replace their missing teeth. Complete dentures are dental appliances that provide a convenient restoration. They restore the appearance of the person by restoring their facial dimensions. It is an affordable treatment that can be adjusted to fit the changing shape of the jawbone. Complete dentures improve speech and enable comfort while eating.
- Fixed Dental Bridge
A fixed dental bridge is for patients who require a fixed restoration for their missing tooth. It is a dental prosthetic that is attached to the adjacent teeth of the patient. The dentist uses dental cement to bond the prosthetic in its place. Patients who have multiple missing teeth can opt for a fixed dental bridge. It helps to restore the aesthetic appearance of the patient through a quick restoration of the missing tooth.
