If you have missing or damaged teeth, Mavis Dental Centre & Dentistry In The Village have many great options to help you get back on track to a healthy and functional smile. However, before you can schedule your dental implant placement, the first step is a consultation to discuss your options with Dr. Michael Luciani or Dr. Amanika Luciani. This will allow us to take a look at your problem areas and figure out which tooth replacement option works best for you and your budget. To give you some background information, below you will find a side-by-side comparison of the three most popular treatment options for replacing teeth: dentures, bridges, and dental implants.
This tooth replacement treatment consists a row of replacement teeth attached to a mold of a special plastic or metal and plastic material that matches your gum color.
When patients choose this option, their adjacent natural teeth are filed down to provide space for the replacement teeth. Once this is done, caps are placed over the adjacent teeth to provide anchors for the bridge (replacement tooth or teeth).
This option is based upon a foundation of titanium roots that are permanently connected to the jawbone. Once healed, the pieces fuse with the jawbone tissues to make for a strong and permanent anchor for a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.
Now that you have learned about the three most popular treatment options, it would be a good time for you to read more about What Dental Implants Are.
