The Restorations Available to Replace Your Missing Tooth

Posted .

If you’re interested in replacing a missing tooth, then our dentist, Dr. Michael S. Tseng, is more than happy to help you. Fortunately, there are many options you can choose from to achieve the smile you desire. At United Dental Group, we proudly offer these tooth-replacement restorations:

Dentures: Dentures are available in two different forms: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures replace all of your teeth and are suctioned to the roof of the mouth, and partial dentures replace a few missing teeth in a row while being clasped to the remaining natural teeth. Both appliances are removable.

Dental Bridge: A dental bridge is a permanent restoration that is made of two dental crowns and one or more false teeth. The false teeth are surrounded by the crowns. The crowns will anchor the bridge in place by clinging to the natural teeth that surround the gap in the smile.

Dental Implant: A dental implant is also a permanent restoration. Instead of it anchoring to the natural teeth, it anchors to the jawbone, which is why it offers a natural-feeling result. This is possible because a titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone. Then, an abutment is attached to that screw. Finally, a dental crown is placed over the abutment. This can also give you a natural-looking result.
