Every tooth you lose creates several new challenges in your daily life. Now, you struggle to chew your favorite foods, and you can’t speak as clearly as you once had. Not to mention, you find yourself hiding your mouth during conversations because you’re insecure about the way you look. Dr. Poe understands the changes you’re experiencing. He can help you enjoy a complete, functional smile again with a multiple tooth implant in Los Alamitos. He uses the most advanced treatments for realistic replicas of your missing teeth.
What are My Options for Tooth Replacement?
Now, you have more options than ever to rebuild a beautiful, functional smile. Besides traditional treatments, Dr. Poe also provides the latest solutions in tooth replacement, including dental implants. Depending on the number of teeth you’re missing and your preferences, you can rebuild your smile with:
Crown & Bridge
A traditional fixed bridge is the most common solution to treat 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth. Dr. Poe takes an impression of your mouth to craft replicas of the teeth you’ve lost. This creates a bridge to fill the empty space. The bridge is held in place by bonding dental crowns over the adjacent teeth.
As an alternative to a traditional bridge, you can also anchor it in place with a dental implant at either end. This prevents you from needing to permanently alter healthy teeth. Not to mention, the posts stimulate your jawbone to stop dental drift. This protects your remaining natural teeth to improve your oral health.
Partial Dentures/Implant-Supported Partial Dentures
A conventional partial denture features custom-made prosthetic teeth and a gum-colored base that has a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining teeth. Although this is effective, it won’t quite feel natural. Dental implants can anchor it to your jawbone. You’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation to enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth.
How Do I Know Which Implant Solution is Right for Me?
Most people who are missing one or more teeth and have good oral health are candidates for dental implants; however, you still need a consultation with Dr. Poe. He performs a comprehensive examination to determine which treatment best meets your needs based on the severity of your tooth loss and your oral health.
Does Replacing Multiple Teeth Impact the Cost?
The more teeth you replace, the more you can expect the treatment to cost. Although dental implants are more expensive upfront, they are the most cost-effective long-term because they should never need to be replaced. This allows you to make a true investment in your oral health and your quality of life.
We provide you with a custom estimate and discuss your payment options during your initial consultation. No matter if you need a partial or an implant-retained bridge in Los Alamitos, we’ll help you find the solution you need to keep your new smile affordable.
