No one should have to go through life with an incomplete smile. It’s harder to enjoy your favorite foods, social interactions become more awkward when you’re embarrassed about your teeth, and over time, you’ll be more prone to oral pain and further tooth loss, thanks to the various health complications that accompany a lost tooth. Dr. Hegazi can help you recover your confident smile with custom-made bridges, dentures, and dental implants; schedule a consultation with us today to see which is the best option for replacing msising teeth in our Hingham, MA dental office.
Bridges offer a stable and sturdy way to replace teeth in a way that feels very comfortable and natural. The empty space will be filled by artificial teeth called pontics, which will be held in place by crowns. The crowns, meanwhile, are attached to your remaining teeth for support. With a dental bridge, you can completely fill in the empty space inside your mouth without having to worry about a removable prosthetic that might come loose.
When a fixed bridge isn’t an option, dentures are typically an affordable way to replace multiple teeth at once. Partial dentures can be used if you still have some natural teeth that are worth saving, but the most extensive cases of tooth loss typically require full dentures to replace the entire arch. If you’re bothered by dentures that don’t stay in place, you can look into having them anchored to dental implants for additional security.
There’s only one way to completely replace the structure of a missing tooth: dental implants. The implant post will replace the roots of the teeth, and the restoration it supports will replace the part used for biting and smiling. At our dental office, the entire implant procedure is completed in-house from start to finish. You don’t have to go to a separate specialist for the surgery; it’ll be handled by the team you’ve already grown comfortable with.
