Full Smiles Ahead!
Have a single missing tooth? If it’s in the front of your mouth it’s likely bothering you more than if it’s in the back where it’s not seen. Both scenarios are causes for dental action —spaces between teeth tend to cause more issues like shifting teeth, a weakened bite, and an increased risk for gum disease.
Two Options that Close the Gap
Ashford Pointe Dental has two custom solutions to make your missing teeth a thing of the past:
- Fixed Bridges. This procedure relies on the teeth surrounding the gap to support the replacement tooth. Teeth on either side of the gap are topped with dental crowns that are bonded directly to a ceramic tooth positioned in the center.
- Single Tooth Implant. This procedure works by placing a small titanium post within the jawbone to recreate the root structure of the missing tooth. This is accomplished during a minor surgical procedure that’s completed in one appointment; the new root is then attached to a porcelain crown with a connector called an abutment.
