Can you replace a missing tooth?
At our Osceola, IA dental office, we provide a number of great options when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. If you are facing a dental extraction or if you are tired of looking at the gap in your smile, we offer a solution so that you can enjoy a complete smile!
Fixed dental bridges – A fixed dental bridge suspends an artificial tooth to fill the gap in your smile. While this is a great option, esthetically, you may find that avoiding chewing on one side of your mouth can be tedious. Dental bridges do keep your remaining teeth from shifting, but do not prevent bone loss.
Dental implants – A dental implant is easily the most popular and recommended way of replacing a missing tooth. A dental implant closely mimics your natural tooth and even has a titanium root that will integrate with your bone, providing a stable foundation for your dental crown.
Dental implants help patients avoid dietary restrictions and preserve valuable bone that is the foundation for your remaining teeth and your facial structure.
To determine which option will match your lifestyle, budget, and oral health needs, just give us a call! We look forward to helping you have a healthy, attractive smile!
