What Happens if I Do Nothing?
Missing teeth can sometimes be easy to ignore, but this can spell big trouble for someone’s oral health over time. Teeth surrounding a gap will naturally start to shift out of place and misalign, which can lead to bite problems that cause chronic pain throughout the face and head. Exposed gum tissue is also more likely to develop an infection, and gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss here in the US. Whether your missing teeth are obvious or not, it’s always a wise decision to have them replaced right away.
Dental bridges are designed to literally “bridge” the gap left by one missing tooth or up to three in a row. Dental crowns are placed on top of the teeth adjacent to the missing ones, and these are bonded to prosthetic teeth that fill in the gap. In addition to restoring the smile’s appearance, bridges also bring balance back to the bite and can prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of place.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If eating, speaking, and smiling are becoming exceedingly difficult because of several missing teeth, the right denture can easily give you a new lease on life. Dr. Gromling can provide you with a partial denture that fits among your remaining teeth like the piece of a puzzle or even a full denture that can bring back an entire row of teeth at once. He’ll work with you throughout the entire process so you’re guaranteed to leave our dental office with a prosthetic that has the perfect look and fit.
Over the past few decades, dental implants have quickly become the gold standard of tooth replacement. Why? Because they are the only treatment that can bring back an entire tooth both above and below the gum line, creating something that is the next best thing to nature. Dr. Gromling uses dental implants that are so lifelike that even you won’t be able to tell it apart from your real teeth, and you’ll be able to trust it to last for 30 years or more.
