What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?
At Peak Dental Health, we understand how challenging it can be to live with a failing or missing tooth. Eating might become uncomfortable or even painful, and interacting with other people might leave you feeling embarrassed. Dr. Nelson offers several solutions for replacing one or multiple missing teeth; the good news is that we can complete them from start to finish here at our Broomfield dental office.
- Dental Implants: These are considered the gold standard for single replacements since they replace both your tooth and root. Implants provide the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth because they are topped with a customized porcelain crown that is designed to complement your smile. They can also be used to support dental prosthetics like a bridge or denture for multiple tooth replacements.
- Dental Bridges: A bridge is also a good choice as it restores function and aesthetics to your smile and protects against teeth shifting. Using a crown on either side as anchors, a bridge fills in the open space with one or more adjacent prosthetic teeth.
- Dentures and Partials: For those missing most or all of their teeth, a full or partial denture is an excellent solution. Full dentures restore an entire arch of teeth, while a partial denture replaces multiple teeth while allowing you to retain a large number of healthy natural teeth.
