Even though you take good care of your teeth, sometimes, an accident, injury or poor dental health can lead to tooth loss. But living with missing teeth can have a serious impact on your overall dental health. Your ability to effectively chew food can be affected, and as other teeth shift to fill the empty space, they can suffer excessive force that leads to cracks and unusually worn places that lead to more damage.
Today, modern dentistry’s tooth replacement options vary widely depending on your needs, and range from dental implants to traditional dentures and bridges, updated to meet the needs and expectations of today’s dental patients.
Visit Elwood Avenue Dental for a consultation with Dr. Salayta for a full evaluation and review of the tooth replacement solutions right for you.
Traditional porcelain bridges can be effective tooth replacement solutions but they can also add stress to the remaining teeth on both sides of the appliance. That’s why today’s porcelain bridges are often coupled with dental implants to preserve remaining teeth in good health.
