Tooth Replacement Options We Offer
Have you struggled with your oral health and are in need of a tooth replacement? With the holidays and new year right around the corner, there is no better time to do something special for yourself. Start the new year off right by restoring your oral health. We are here to help explain some of the tooth replacement options we can provide to patients. Our goal is to help patients choose an option that is aesthetically pleasing while restoring the function of their teeth and also promoting lifelong health. Before making any recommendations, we will perform a thorough examination and discuss your lifestyle and what you are looking for in a tooth replacement. We may then make one of the following suggestions:
This option replaces the entire tooth structure and is designed to imitate a natural tooth root. A post is implanted into the jawbone that acts like a tooth root. The process is then completed with a prosthetic, such as a dental crown. This treatment is permanent and bears the closest resemblance to a natural tooth.
Traditional dentures are removable and designed to look like the teeth and gums. They can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth or can also be a partial replacement. Fixed dentures are securely attached to dental implants that are strategically placed in the jaw. They are not removable because they are permanently held in place.
Made from a high-quality and durable material, a dental crown can be used to cover a severely damaged tooth or to complete a dental implant or root canal. A crown blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth and prevents further damage to the tooth and the surrounding teeth.
If you are in need of a tooth replacement and interested in learning more about which option we would recommend or have questions regarding options we have discussed, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Meridian, ID, to schedule an appointment.
