What are your options for replacing missing teeth?
Missing teeth not only look unattractive but if we don't replace them, they can lead to other oral health problems. At Pruce Dental, we have several solutions to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants in Washington, PA have become a very popular tooth replacement method for several reasons. Unlike other options, a dental implant is a permanent, stand-alone artificial tooth that looks and functions just like a natural tooth. It is held firmly in place by an implant in your jaw, giving it superior stability and strength.
Bridges are a dental prosthetic that fills the space left by a missing tooth. A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth that is held in place by crowns that are attached to adjacent teeth.
Partial and complete dentures are appropriate whether you are missing several teeth or all your teeth. We can fashion beautiful, natural-looking dentures that will provide you with many years of use.
If missing teeth are not replaced using one of these methods, surrounding teeth can begin to drift into the open space. This movement ultimately leads to problems with your dental bite as well as the deterioration of your gums.
We would be happy to discuss these options to see which is the most appropriate for your needs. Please contact Pruce Dental to arrange a commitment-free consultation.
