Having a missing tooth not only alters your appearance, but it can also change the shape of your jawline. A tooth gap in your mouth can cause surrounding teeth to shift into the gap, changing your smile and leading to bone loss.
In addition to preventing future dental complications, getting your tooth replaced can restore your ability to enjoy your favorite foods and speak without difficulty. Finally, many people who experience tooth loss find themselves hiding their smile. Getting a tooth replacement as soon as possible has many benefits.
Replacing a Missing Tooth
At Frontier Dental, we have several tooth replacement options that may work for you:
- Full and partial dentures are an excellent option for many patients in Medina, OH. Denture technology and materials have come a long way, and modern dentures are considered to be comfortable and have a snug fit.
- Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement options. Implants replace the root of a missing tooth with a thin titanium post that is implanted in your jaw. This becomes the base for the dental crown that looks and functions like your natural teeth.
- Snap-On dentures are an excellent combination for replacing missing teeth. These are a removable, palateless denture that can be snapped on as many times as necessary. The denture can snap into the mini implants that are placed along the jawbone.
