If you are among those who have lost several, you need an effective solution for multiple tooth replacement in Orange Park. Dr. Matthew Nawrocki can complete your smile using the right treatment for your needs and your lifestyle.
What are My Options for Tooth Replacement?
Now, there are several options to replace your missing teeth. After performing an initial consultation to assess your oral health, Dr. Nawrocki discusses which solutions are right for you. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, you can benefit from:
Crown & Bridge
A crown and bridge are the most traditional option to replace one to three consecutive missing teeth. Prosthetics are crafted to match the appearance of your natural teeth to blend in seamlessly when you smile. It is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns to them. This can provide you with a complete smile for an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced.
As an alternative to a traditional bridge, many people have come to prefer the stability of dental implants. Instead of using dental crowns to hold the bridge in place, an average of one or two implant posts anchor it to your jawbone. This allows healthy teeth to remain unaltered while giving you a solution that can last for a lifetime.
Partial dentures fill the space of missing teeth by using prosthetics attached to a gum-colored base. The appliance features a metal framework which allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining teeth. Now, new advancements make them look more natural, so no one will tell they are not your own.
Implant-Supported Partial Dentures
Anchoring your partial denture to your jawbone with dental implants restores as much as 70% of your biting force. You will not need to worry about any slipping or irritation using a treatment that closely looks and feels natural.
Which is the Right Solution for Me?
Dr. Nawrocki performs a comprehensive consultation to evaluate your oral health and your remaining permanent teeth. Your teeth must be healthy to support traditional treatments, like a bride or partial.
If you prefer a long-lasting solution, you will need a CT scan to assess the health of your jawbone to see if dental implants are right for you. Based on the results of Dr. Nawrocki’s examination, he recommends a treatment that meets your needs while accommodating your lifestyle.
Does Replacing Multiple Teeth Cost More?
There are several factors that influence the amount you can expect to pay, such as if you choose a traditional treatment or dental implants. During your consultation, Dr. Nawrocki provides an estimate and discusses your payment options to keep your new smile affordable.
