It can be very emotional to have a tooth extracted or deal with a missing tooth or teeth. After dealing with those emotions, we at Friendly Family Dentistry don’t want choosing a tooth replacement option to be a difficult decision for you. We work with our patients to help them make a decision on an option that is most beneficial to their lifestyle. That being said, our first recommendation and most popular choice among patients are dental implants.
Are you missing a tooth and are unsure which replacement option is right for you? Whether you are missing a tooth due to an extraction, injury, or genetics, it can be overwhelming making the decision about which replacement method is correct for your lifestyle and budget.
Despite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans still incur tooth loss, mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. For many years, the only solutions to these problems were the use of crowns, bridges, and dentures. Thankfully, today we also have dental implants. A dental implant is a high-tech replacement tooth that mimics the whole tooth structure. A titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gum line and then a crown, or the replacement tooth, is affixed to the implant.
Do you have a missing tooth? You aren’t alone. More than 120 million Americans have at least one missing tooth, with over a third of that number having no teeth at all. To learn why it is important to replace missing teeth as quickly as possible and the options available, click here.
