While it may not seem like a big deal to have a missing tooth, the side effects can begin to appear relatively soon after your tooth is lost. Not only is your smile incomplete, but chewing food becomes more difficult and your face’s appearance changes. Dr. Borsky is more than prepared to help you determine the best tooth replacement option for you, whether it’s bridges, dentures, or dental implants! Call his office to schedule your next consultation.
The standard for tooth replacement for many years now, dental bridges make it possible to replace one or multiple consecutive teeth at a time. Made from a series of crowns fused together, dental bridges are held in place by teeth sitting adjacent to the gap in your smile. These teeth act as anchors for your restoration, allowing you to effectively bridge the gap in your smile. We use tooth-colored materials to create your bridge, ensuring that it looks natural throughout.
With full and partial dentures, you can replace several teeth on opposite sides of your mouth and even all the teeth in a given arch. Full dentures are held in place via the natural suction of your mouth and denture adhesive, while partial dentures use metal clasps that wrap around neighboring teeth to stay in place. Dr. Borsky also does provides hybrid dentures, which are snapped on top of dental implants to provide a more reliable and longer-lasting fit.
If you want the most comprehensive solution to tooth replacement, it’s hard to beat dental implants. These restorations work to replace the root as well as the crown, ensuring long-term use, functionality and esthetics. Dr. Borsky works with talented specialists in the area to have your implants placed. Once they have fully healed, you’ll come back to the office to have your implant restored with high-quality, an implant-retained crown, bridge, or denture.
