If you have any missing or lost teeth or are scheduled for a tooth extraction in the near future, have you begun to think about a treatment to fill in the void left in your mouth? If left untreated, gaps where teeth are missing can become havens for bacterial buildup and food debris. In addition, missing teeth can destabilize your gums, waken your jawbone, and lead to tooth slippage. Consider the following tooth replacements:
– Dentures – Dentures are extremely effective tooth replacements that can be given to replace as little as one tooth or as entire rows of teeth. Dentures are changeable and can easily be taken out and cleaned by washing them in a denture cleaning solution.
– Dental Bridges – Dental bridges are tooth prosthetics crafted and connected directly to nearby or neighboring teeth to fill out your smile with safe and effective tooth replacements.
– Dental Implants – Dental implants are desirable tooth prosthetics crafted to attach directly to your jawbone. However, your jawbone must be sturdy enough to support dental implants.
No matter the tooth replacements you are in need of, Dr. James Hardy and our team at Hardy Smiles are here to help you in every way we can.
