Bad. Do Nothing About Your Missing Replace

If you have missing teeth or failing teeth, you’ll want to do something about your problem. Having missing teeth is obviously an eye sore. The missing teeth will stick out like a sore thumb! That’s the most obvious problem. The other problem is that missing teeth actually cause your mouth to change shape. Unfortunately, the jawbone will recede after the tooth is gone. This jawbone recession often causes wrinkles around the mouth, and patients see the distance of their chin and nose grow closer together.

Good. Replace Teeth With Removable Dentures, Bridges    

The two most common ways to replace missing teeth are: removable dentures and bridges. We dentists have used this restorative methods for years, and they are still popular. While these restorative options have become more lifelike than ever, they still have some limitations. We’ll start with removable dentures. These dentures rely on fit to stay in the mouth. Patients with dentures often use adhesives to keep the dentures in the mouth, but these devices can still shift around. This makes it hard to eat the foods you love or have confidence in public.

Bridges are often used to replace a single missing tooth or a gap in the smile. Bridges are made from a series of dental crowns. At Crowns Now, we can design and place a restoration in a single day. This saves you time in the office, and of course, you get to restore your mouth fast! The one problem with bridges is they require us to restore nearby teeth to support the restoration.

Great. Replace Missing Teeth With Durable Dental Implants

Dental implants have become one of the most reliable ways to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are so strong because they are placed into the bone. Once placed, these implants actually merge with the jawbone and literally become part of your body. Then we can restore the implants with either crowns, bridges, or full arches of new teeth.

A popular method for replacing entire arches or all of your natural teeth is All-on-4 dental implants. This system allows us to use just four implants to stabilize an entire arch of teeth.  Our patients love All-on-4 because they eat whatever they want AND the upper palate is left open.

As you can see, there are a number of ways to restore your mouth. Learn how our Neenah WI dental office can replace missing teeth. Call Crowns Now at 920-221-7948 or contact us online to request an appointment.
