Replacement of Missing Teeth

 

Not all missing teeth need to be replaced if they are not critical to good chewing function, or are not creating unaesthetic smiles because of gaps that are readily seen.  There are a number of ways that missing teeth can be restored:

 

  • Implants

  • Fixed Bridge

  • Partial Dentures

  • Full Dentures

  • Mini Implants

Dental Implants Elk Grove

Profile Dental offers dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial teeth that look and feel just like natural teeth.

 

Implants are threaded, screw-like posts that are anchored into the bone.  The bone actually grows securely around the implant and leaves it very solid. Once the implant is secure an abutment or post is attached to the implant, and then a crown is placed on the abutment.

Dental implants make a very nice single or multiple tooth replacement technique.  It requires no preparation of adjacent teeth and the new implant stands alone.  Once the implant securely fuses with the bone, a temporary crown will be installed and later replaced with a permanent one.  The permanent crown is designed to match your existing teeth for the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted!

Dental implants are great alternatives to dentures and bridges because implants function just like natural teeth, giving you the confidence to eat chewy and hard food without worrying about losing your dentures.

 

Besides restoring function, dental implants can also enhance your smile and improve the way you speak.  For a confidence boost and improved lifestyle, choose dental implants now!

Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations used to literally bridge the gap left by lost teeth.  They are one of the most common teeth replacement solutions.  Fixed bridges are more secure than removable dentures because they are bonded into place and only your dentist can remove them.

 

At Profile Dental we offer high quality, stunning dental bridges that can seamlessly blend with the rest of your teeth and restore your beautiful smile.

 

On your first visit, your dentist in Elk Grove will examine your teeth to determine if bridges are one of your best teeth replacement options.

In a situation where there are teeth on either side of a space, and the adjacent teeth are firm and healthy- a crown can be placed on the teeth on both sides of the space and the missing tooth can be added between them.  This is cemented in place and usually feels very natural and comfortable.  This technique is very well suited for cases in which the teeth on either side of a space are compromised themselves and should be crowned anyway.  If the adjacent teeth are in perfect condition with no cavities or other problems – then an implant is often the best treatment.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture fills the gap between two healthy teeth and consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base.  Removable partial dentures are connected by a metal framework that helps keep them in place.

 

 

In cases where multiple teeth have been lost over the years, but there are good strong anchor teeth remaining – then removable partial dentures might be the treatment of choice.  They are not cemented in place as are bridges.  They can be removed to be maintained or modified.

 

They are less expensive than multiple implants, give a good chewing surface, and can provide good aesthetics.

Partial dentures offer several benefits:

  • Make it easier to speak and chew

  • Maintain the shape of your face

  • Decrease the risk of periodontal disease and resulting gum disease treatment

  • Prevent teeth from shifting in your mouth

  • Ease the stress of your jaw

Dental Implants Elk Grove

Your Elk Grove dentist will take impressions to make preliminary models for custom impression trays and then take even more accurate impressions to create a model for your dentures.  Before the process is complete, you will be able to try on a version of your custom dentures.  You will then be sure that the final appearance of your dentures are exactly what you had in mind.

 

The dentures we offer at Profile Dental are beautiful and natural looking.  They are carefully crafted and color-matched to mimic the appearance of your own teeth and gums, creating a seamless, beautifully restored smile.

 

Our custom made dentures are designed to be the perfect fit for you.  They fill out the face and support the lips.

Mini or Narrow Bodied Implants

Sometimes dentures are difficult to keep securely in place because of resorbed or narrow ridges.  It is possible to place relatively narrow titanium screw like implants into the bony ridges and use them to anchor to the underside of a full or even a partial denture.

 

They are most commonly used to stabilize a denture and will give a person the ability to laugh, talk and eat without worries of their denture moving, pinching or even worse… falling out!  At Profile Dental, mini implants are typically placed in a one-step procedure.

The Advantages of Mini Implants
  • more stability

  • fewer sore spots

  • more natural feeling 

  • a short healing time

  • less costly than traditional implants

 

It’s time to stop hiding your smile behind your hand because you are self-conscious about your missing teeth!  At Profile Dental we offer many teeth replacement options.  With restored teeth, you can eat better, and speak and smile confidently again.
