If you are in search of restorative dentistry solutions to replace one or more missing teeth, you’ve come to the right place. We, at Tracey Dental, are proud to offer quality restorations, including partial dentures, implants, and bridges. Given Dr. Long’s extensive experience and expertise, you can trust that your smile is in capable hands.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth gradually shift into the gap, which may lead to crooked teeth, a crowded mouth, and jaw problems. Teeth are out of alignment are harder to clean, often resulting in gum disease and tooth decay.
Restoring missing teeth will help preserve the underlying structures of your mouth, leaving you with a more youthful appearance. You’ll be able to chew with ease and will speak with clarity. You’ll also enjoy improved oral health and can smile with confidence once again.
Partials are removable dental appliances that replace one or more missing teeth, restoring your appearance and oral functions. We closely match your tooth replacements to the neighboring teeth, which allows you to enjoy a natural-looking smile.
Implants are the best available options for replacing missing teeth. They look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Implants involve placing artificial tooth roots made of titanium into your jawbone, which provides a secure foundation for fixed or removable tooth replacements, dentures, or bridges. They are the only restorations that prevent bone loss because they act just like natural tooth roots. Implant surgery is one of the safest and most successful procedures in dentistry, with a 95 percent success rate.
Similar to partials, bridges are custom made restorations used to “bridge” a gap left by one or more missing teeth. If you are not a candidate for an implant, a bridge is a great option to replace up to two missing teeth when there are teeth on either side that can support it. Dental bridges deliver the comfort and stability of fixed restorations.
