Do have you lost teeth in a recent accident? Have missing teeth been affecting the way you eat and speak?
Missing teeth should be treated as quickly as possible. Once a tooth is lost, your jaw bone begins to deteriorate. It will continue to deteriorate if no treatment is sought, making replacement options more and more difficult while potentially affecting other teeth. You are at risk of developing other dental issues as well. Misalignment is inevitable. A single missing tooth can actually help other teeth shift and become crooked. You are also more susceptible to gum infections, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and tooth cavities.
Dr. Hires and his dental team can replace missing teeth with a few options. Your first step is to get a comprehensive dental exam from one of our dentists in Toledo OH. This initial exam will give us detailed information on your unique situation. We will examine the affected area where you lost your tooth, as well as the rest of your teeth, gum health, and screen for oral cancer.
Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Hires Dental Care in Toledo offers a variety of options available for replacing missing teeth. Your dentist will perform a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose your specific condition and make recommendations for the best long term results. Our goal is to restore your smile to its natural function with optimal health and esthetics.
- Dental implants: dental implants are the most lifelike replacements for missing teeth. They are a permanent solution for tooth loss, with a success rate over 95%. Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Dental implant costs are a major concern for many patients. It should be noted, however, that dental implants offer the best long term solution and need the least amount of dental work in the future. While no type of dental restoration is 100% guaranteed, patients with dental implants often experience no maintenance requirements or additional costs.
- Dentures and partial dentures: dentures and partials can be a very effective solution for missing teeth. Used for centuries to replace missing teeth, today’s dentures look and feel more like natural teeth then ever before. Hires Dental Care offers a variety of dentures including implant supported dentures which offer better retention and long term benefits compared to traditional removable dentures.
- Dental bridges: dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. There are many types of dental bridges available including implant secured dental bridges which are permanent and extremely long lasting.
