When teeth are lost, it is important that patients speak to their dentist about replacing missing teeth with dental restorations. Dr. Bella Hanono proudly offers several methods for tooth replacement and can help patients in the Alpharetta, Georgia, area make an educated decision on the one most appropriate for their needs.
Options for replacing missing teeth
Dr. Bella Hanono offers a number of options for patients to choose from for tooth replacement, including:
- Dentures: Partial and full dentures are often used to replace one or all teeth missing in your smile. These removable appliances may be fabricated with metal and/or acrylic materials and can restore your smile and teeth functionality.
- Dental bridges: A dental bridge is a restoration made of porcelain that matches the patient’s existing teeth. It replaces one or more teeth in a row, using the adjacent teeth for support. It essentially “bridges the gap” left behind from extracted or lost teeth.
- Dental implants: Implants are a permanent option that allows for bone maintenance. The implant fuses with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration and functions as a replacement tooth root. The abutment attached to the implant can connect it to various restorations, such as a dental crown or bridge.
- Implant-retained dentures: Patients replacing all the teeth may seriously consider reliable and long-term options such as implant-retained dentures. Implant-retained dentures allow patients to have a more permanent denture in place that is easy to care for and provides better function than a full denture alone.
