Are missing teeth holding you back from living your life to the fullest?
Missing teeth can be embarrassing, keep you from sharing your smile, and can make it difficult to live your life to the fullest. Missing teeth also affect your oral health and can cause subsequent oral health concerns. Even one missing tooth can impact the alignment, function, and health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Replacing missing teeth can protect remaining teeth from damage and prevent further oral health complications.
Advancements in restorative dental technology have made replacing missing teeth more natural than ever before. Dental implants and implant secured dentures help patients enjoy a natural looking and highly functional bite and smile. Dr. Nadder Hassan provides dental implant services from the comfort of our Manassas, VA dentist office. Our in-house dental implant services help to streamline the implant process making replacing missing teeth more convenient for our patients.
Manassas Smiles can help you restore health and function to your smile.
Missing Teeth & Related Oral Health Concerns
Missing teeth compromise a patient’s oral health. Even just one missing tooth can cause teeth to shift creating an unbalanced bite and compromising the jawbone. Chipping, excessive wear, and cracking of adjacent teeth are also typical for patients with missing teeth. Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat, speak, and may decrease a patient’s self-confidence.
Left untreated, additional tooth loss becomes more probable, and patient’s risk of gum disease and bone deterioration increases. The jawbone relies on the teeth for support. Without all of the teeth, the jawbone may begin to deteriorate and eventually recede. As the jawbone recedes, the facial integrity is compromised, and the face may start to appear withdrawn, prematurely aging the patient.
Treatment Options: Replacing Missing Teeth
Dr. Hassan offers options for replacing missing teeth. Treatment will vary depending on the oral health, number, and location of missing teeth, cosmetic goals and budget of the individual patient. Dr. Hassan will work with you to determine which missing tooth replacement options will best restore your smile. Whenever possible, Dr. Hassan may recommend dental implants for added support and long-term oral health.
- Dental Bridge– A dental bridge is most commonly used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. A bridge can be attached to two prepared adjacent teeth or secured using a dental implant for added stability.
- Full or Partial Denture- Dentures are the most common treatment option for patients with a complete arch of missing teeth. Dentures either be secured using dental implants or made removable. Implant secured dentures provide patients with added stability and improved function of the bite.
- Dental Implants– Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jaw to and are used to secure a dental restoration. Dental implants provide high success rates, natural aesthetics and improved oral health and function.
