Whether it is due to disease and decay, aging or accident and injury, we might harm or even lose some or all our teeth. This does not mean we are permanently without them thanks to the options for restorative dentistry. Just as it sounds, this area of dentistry allows us to help our patients at Rivercrest Family Dental in New Braunfels, TX regain the use of their teeth and gums through restorative dentistry options like:
When you have lost one or more teeth, and all in a row, it makes many problems. Not only might you be embarrassed by the wide gap shown whenever you speak or smile, but the loss of even a single tooth can cause the other teeth to loosen, shift and alter the bite. You may begin to see odd cracks or chips where teeth are now meeting in unusual ways, and decay can become a problem.
Fortunately, there is a form of restorative dentistry that provides an easy solution. Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between teeth, replacing missing teeth with durable substitutes. The way a bridge works is simple; it is mounted permanently to natural teeth at each end. These are the abutments, and they are usually treated with dental crowns to prevent damage or unnatural wear. The bridge is then made to match your mouth and bite, and is placed securely with the new crowns.
Don’t think of dentures as an old-fashioned solution to missing teeth. Today, they are the result of amazing technologies and can be found in many designs. We offer our patients access to full, partial or even advanced implant supported dentures. All of them are going to fit flawlessly, be impossible to tell from natural teeth and last you many years without troubles or the need for replacement. Allow our restorative dentist to show you the many options available to you with the use of dentures.
When a tooth becomes damaged or decayed, it is at risk for loss. This is the last thing we want our patients to endure, and so we are glad to offer dental crowns. They are made of durable and long-wearing materials colored to match the natural teeth. They fit snugly over the remaining portion of the tooth, keeping it stable, comfortable and free from damage or decay. Made specifically to a patient’s needs, they are a great answer to the need for restorative or even cosmetic dentistry.
What do you do when you have lost an adult tooth, or even many adult teeth? Dentures are always an answer, but so too are dental implants. A high success rate makes them one of the best restorative dentistry options, and our team can provide patients with single tooth and multi-tooth options, but we can also discuss more advanced solutions like all on 4 implants, implant dentures, implant supported bridges, and mini implants. Maintain the integrity of your gums and jaw, eat and speak like always, and restore your mouth to its fullest function with dental implants.
As you can see, our restorative dentist can provide you with an abundance of solutions and help you regain the fullest use of your mouth possible. You can soon eat, speak and look like you did before you suffered the loss of any teeth.
