The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
Our primary goal at AZ Family Dental is to work with you to maintain the health and beauty of your natural teeth. Sometimes, due to a traumatic accident, gum disease, or decay, you may lose one or multiple teeth. If this happens, our tooth replacement services can restore your smile and improve your oral health.
From a cosmetic perspective, replacing a missing tooth can help you feel more confident about your smile. However, missing teeth may also be harmful to your overall dental health. Teeth start as a full set, and even one gap can impact your mouth’s delicate balance and lead to often escalating dental issues, such as:
- Teeth shifting or drifting from their proper position
- Crooked, crowded, or sideways sitting teeth
- Change in your bite
- Altered speech
- Excessive dental wear
- Change in facial structure
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
- Potential gum disease or tooth decay
Frequently Asked Questions for Tooth Replacement
An implant crown is the best option to replace a missing tooth. Implants can replace anywhere from a singular tooth to a complete set of teeth, and we will secure the implant with titanium through the natural root. This replacement is stable, secure, and cost-effective.
The three types of tooth replacements are dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures. Dental implants can replace any number of teeth needed–from one to an entire set. Dental bridges are most effective for replacing multiple teeth that are next to each other. Dentures are easily removable sets of teeth and can be taken in and out as you please.
The most natural tooth replacement is a Zirconia, a type of dental implant that has the appearance of a natural tooth. Planted in the jawbone, this implant is colored to replicate your teeth.
Yes. No matter the number of years that have passed since losing a tooth, you are eligible for dental implants. As long as you have not previously gotten that tooth replaced and you have strong jawbone density, a dental implant is an option for you.
Dentures are popularly the cheapest option to replace all your teeth at once. With wire and an acrylic frame, dentures can replace a few teeth or entire rows at once. These are also suitable for all lifestyles, as you can have them in or out, depending on your day-to-day activities.
