Improvements in Oral Health Care: Tooth Replacements

Posted .

Even if you have suffered lost teeth and are looking for replacements to restore your smile once more, it is important to make sure that you are choosing the correct replacements so that you can have the smile you desire. Depending on your age, health, and oral health conditions, various forms of tooth replacements can be applied to bring back the smile you desire.

If you wish to replace any missing teeth with dentures, be aware of the two most common forms. Partial dentures are designed to replace just a few missing teeth at a time whereas complete dentures are designed to replace as many teeth as you need, which in many cases includes entire rows of teeth.

Dental implants are firmly affixed to your jawbone for a durable hold that may not slip and slide around. If your jawbone is not strong enough to hold dental implants, dental bridges can be used and anchored to other nearby or neighboring teeth. Through the use of implants and bridges, there are no food restrictions required, as you can enjoy any foods you like without the fear of tooth slippage.

No matter which option for the tooth replacement you choose, Dr. Scott Fellows and Dr. Michael Smink at Fellows and Smink Dental Associates will make sure that you receive the care and support your smile requires.
