Our O’Fallon Dental Implant Dentist Shares Helpful Information About Tooth Replacement Treatment

Written by Dr. Brace on Jul 26, 2022

Premature tooth loss is one of the most disruptive oral health problems that adult patients face. The good news is that there are restorative treatments available to help get your smile back on track. Today our O’Fallon dental implant dentists are going to be sharing more information about them…

Replacing Single Teeth 

Tooth loss occurs as the results of an infection or trauma, but no matter the cause, the resultant hole in your smile can be functionally and aesthetically problematic. The good news is that our team crafts custom restorations to serve as replacement teeth. We’ll use your natural smile to guide us as we shape, size, and shade your restoration to meet your needs.

Replacing Multiple Teeth

Another common scenario is that a patient needs to replace multiple teeth in order to restore his or her smile. One way to do this is to use individual restorations for each missing tooth. However, it is also possible to replace many teeth with just one dental appliance, like a bridge or full denture. It all depends on the state of your smile, your dental goals, and your treatment timeline.

Making Restorations Permanent

Dental implant technology has transformed the way that we’re able to treat tooth loss; titanium implant roots extend from the dental restoration into the jawbone tissue just like a natural tooth root. Once in place, these roots actually begin to bond with your natural jawbone. Consequently, dental implant treatment simultaneously stabilizes the replacement tooth and promotes healthy bone tissue.  

Don’t let tooth loss damage your oral health or your self-esteem. Remember, you can always call our O’Fallon dental implant dentists to get more information about tooth replacement treatments, and to schedule a personal consultation. We are here to help!
