What Happens if I Do Nothing?
If the lost tooth is hard to notice, many patients are tempted to simply leave the matter alone. While the final decision is up to you, our dentists would like to gently advise against doing nothing. The loss of healthy jawbone material is a big consequence when teeth are missing for the long-term, which can eventually impact the health of surrounding dental structure and lead to a higher risk of additional tooth loss. It can also alter the way your face looks as the years, resulting in a weaker jawbone and even “sunken” lips.
In today’s world, dental implants are the clear frontrunner for seamlessly natural-looking tooth replacement that’s also unmatched in terms of durability, function, and longevity. They succeed where more traditional options fall short because they replace the entire natural tooth, including the root that’s safely hidden away underneath the gum tissue. At Washington Dental Associates, we’re proud to offer every stage of this transformative treatment right here in-office for your convenience!
Dental bridges are named as such because they literally “bridge” the gaps left by consecutive missing teeth. Traditionally, these sturdy prosthetics are held in place with two dental crowns, one on either side. These restorations work like “anchors” that attach the bridge to adjacent natural teeth; however, this approach does require healthy dental structure to be filed down. A healthier, longer-lasting option is implant-retained bridges, which rely on the placement of two modern dental implants instead for superior stability.
Dentures have been a reliable mainstay of tooth replacement for hundreds of years now, and today’s modern prosthetics are more lifelike and more comfortable than ever before. Our dentists can help patients determine which style best fits their needs, preferences, and overall budget, as well as whether they’d like to use a traditional, removable denture or an implant-retained model that is anchored permanently in place.
