Do you have missing teeth? Do you hide your smile because you’re embarrassed of your missing teeth?
Coastal Cosmetic Dentistry offers restorative dental options that improve the appearance of teeth and overall oral health.
Common Causes of Missing Teeth
Teeth can fall out of the mouth in a variety of ways:
- Tooth Decay
- Gum Disease
- Genetic Factors
You may be at risk for losing teeth if you have any of these conditions, so talk to our dentists about teeth cleanings and treatments.
Missing Teeth Problems
Missing teeth cause a multitude of problems if they are not replaced soon enough:
- Tooth loss
- If caused by tooth decay, halitosis (bad breath)
- Difficulty speaking clearly
- Difficulty chewing and biting food
- Tooth crowding due to shifting teeth
However, there are treatment options that restore teeth and can prevent further damage to teeth.
Restorative Dental Treatment Options
Before treatment, Dr. Cappy Sinclair will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your teeth and will determine which treatment option works for you.
Some of the treatment options provided at Coastal Cosmetic Dentistry include:
Dental bridges “bridge the gap” between teeth to replace a tooth or several teeth. This solution is used to secure dental implants in place for a secure and comfortable fit. Bridges also give patients a more natural-looking smile.
Dentures are an excellent option for patients who are missing the upper or lower arch of teeth. Coastal Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry uses the “All on Four” method to permanently secure dentures if requested. Temporary dentures are implanted in one office visit and then more permanent dentures are placed in 2 to 3 months.
This solution involves the implant of titanium posts which are secured to the jaw bone. dental implants are the top recommended solution for missing teeth. Then a temporary bridge or crown is placed over the post. After 3 to 6 months, a permanent crown is placed on the post.
