Multiple Tooth Replacement – Ormond Beach, FL
Say Goodbye to Gaps with Multiple Tooth Replacement
Are you missing multiple teeth? You shouldn’t have to deal with the daily inconveniences of an incomplete smile, such as difficulty chewing and embarrassment in social situations. We invite you to visit us to discuss your options for tooth replacement. Our team can provide you with a long-lasting, natural-looking prosthetic that renews your confidence and restores full dental function.
What Are the Tooth Replacement Options?
There are essentially three treatments that our team can use to replace multiple missing teeth: a traditional crown and bridge, an implant-supported bridge, or a partial denture (traditional or implant-supported). Each option has its own unique advantages, which we will discuss with you during your in-depth consultation. After we compare your options, we’ll help you decide on the treatment that best fits your budget and circumstances. Regardless of which type of prosthetic you choose to receive, you can look forward to gaining strong and reliable tooth replacement.
- Traditional Bridge: A traditional bridge, sometimes called crown and bridge, is a prosthetic that relies on the remaining natural teeth for support. It has two crowns, which fit over the abutment teeth (the teeth adjacent to the gap). The crowns support artificial teeth that “bridge” the empty space. Many patients choose to receive a traditional bridge because this type of restoration can be quite durable and natural-looking. It is also relatively inexpensive.
- Implant-Supported Bridge: As its name implies, an implant-supported bridge is supported by dental implants rather than by a patient’s remaining natural teeth. The dental implants act as substitute tooth roots, ensuring that the restoration they support is as sturdy as possible. Implant-supported bridges last even longer than their traditional counterparts, and they have the added advantage of promoting jawbone health. They may also feel more natural than traditional bridges.
- Partial Dentures/Implant-Supported Partial Dentures: A partial denture is sort of like a puzzle piece; it fits in exactly where it is needed to replace multiple teeth at various places throughout an arch. A traditional partial denture remains secure in the mouth with the help of small metal clips. The clips are discreet but not invisible. An implant-supported denture, on the other hand, is anchored in the jawbone via dental implants, giving it superior strength and aesthetics.
Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
We usually recommend dental implant-supported multiple tooth replacement in Ormond Beach over traditional options due to the many benefits that implants offer. If you are missing several teeth in a row, an implant-supported bridge may be the ideal solution for you. If your missing teeth are at various places throughout your mouth, an implant-supported partial denture may be a more appropriate treatment.
How Much Will My Treatment Cost?
The cost of your treatment will depend on how many teeth you need to have replaced and whether you choose traditional or implant-supported tooth replacement. Although dental implants tend to cost more, they are a worthwhile investment due to the many benefit they offer. When you visit us for your consultation, we’ll provide you with an estimate for the cost of your new teeth. We’ll also help you explore payment and financing options so you can fit your treatment into your budget.
