Our professional team at McIntosh Dental is here to provide you with the best tooth replacement options for your needs.
Why Replace a Missing Tooth?
Your smile, ability to chew and long-term oral health can all be affected when you don’t replace a missing tooth.
Over time, the neighbouring teeth will gradually shift into the gap, leading to misaligned teeth, an uneven bite, and making you more susceptible to gum disease.
Causes of Missing Teeth
There are several reasons why you may have lost a tooth, including injury or trauma, Gum disease and tooth decay, grinding or clenching your teeth, smoking, and genetics.
Tooth Replacement Options
At McIntosh Dental, we offer several tooth replacement options to restore your smile and protect your oral health.
Dental implants are a permanent teeth replacement option that looks, feels, and acts like your natural teeth. A titanium screw is surgically implanted into your jawbone, providing a base for a dental crown to be mounted. This treatment replaces the missing tooth without impacting neighbouring teeth.
Tooth Bridge and Dental Crown
Another option for replacing a missing tooth is a tooth bridge and dental crown. The dental bridge is attached to neighbouring teeth, and a dental crown is fitted, spanning the gap and restoring your bite. However, dental bridges need to be replaced every 10-15 years and rely on the support of neighbouring teeth.
An implant-supported bridge is a hybrid of dental implants and tooth bridges used for replacing multiple missing teeth in a row.
Titanium screws are surgically implanted into the jawbone, anchoring the bridge in place. This treatment can be more cost-effective while still producing great results, but it can only be used in certain circumstances.
Partial dentures are another option for replacing missing teeth clasped into place. They can be cost-effective, but some people find them uncomfortable to get used to and have additional daily cleaning and storing requirements.
At McIntosh Dental, we are dedicated to providing you with the best tooth replacement options for your needs.
