Whether you are missing one or a few teeth, modern dentistry offers several solutions, and Dr. Fields can help.
For single tooth replacement, Dr. Fields may recommend either a dental bridge or implant.
Tooth implants are ideal because they replace both your root and your tooth, which protects your bone from deterioration while also restoring your smile. Dr. Fields can complete dental implants from start to finish here at our Cabot dental office.
A dental bridge can replace a single tooth or multiple adjacent teeth with crowns on each side that act as anchors for artificial teeth.
If you are missing most or even all of your teeth, Dr. Fields may recommend a full or partial denture. A complete denture is an appliance that replaces all of your teeth. It's made of acrylic and designed to mimic your natural teeth, so you regain the function and aesthetics you lost. We can also use a few tooth implants to support a denture, which provides more security and stability and eliminates movement or slippage.
A partial is a removable appliance that replaces multiple teeth but also lets you maintain your healthy teeth. A partial completes your smile and helps you eat and chew with ease again.
If you or a loved one is living with missing teeth, Dr. Fields would love to talk with you about the options you have to restore your smile. Contact our dental office in Cabot today with any questions you might have.
