Options If You Have Missing Teeth

June 4, 2015

Midtown West Replacing Teeth | Manhattan Dentist

Manhattan Cosmetic DentistIf you are missing a tooth, it affects your life in a big way. Not only are your looks and smile diminished, but you use your teeth to speak and chew, and a missing tooth can make those difficult. Fortunately, missing teeth can be replaced in several different ways. Your dentist may recommend dental implants, a fixed bridge, or a removable partial denture. Which option you choose can depend on your concerns, finances, and goals for treatment.

Manhattan Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. A replacement tooth is then attached. This give the patient a sturdy tooth replacement that works well for most people, and they never have to be removed. Another option is a fixed bridge, which uses your natural teeth next to the empty space to support a false tooth. Your dentist must contour the adjacent tooth so that a crown can be placed on it to support the bridge. This is sometimes a more affordable solution than implants.

The final option is partial dentures. These hold false teeth on a plastic or metal framework which is removable. It’s designed to fit around adjacent teeth, and needs to be removed nightly for cleaning and to allow the gum to breath. If you've lost a tooth, make an appointment with our Upper East Side dental office to discuss all your options. You’ll be on your way to a confident smile once again!
