Tooth Replacement Options in Tampa, FL
Tooth replacement is about more than smile aesthetics. A complete smile also contributes to your oral health, preventing tooth wear, tooth migration, and even bone loss.
A dental implant restores a lost tooth root. Your dentist surgically places this restoring root and allows several months for healing and jawbone integration. When healing is complete, we top your dental implant with a replacement tooth or a prosthetic.
Typically, we rely on six or fewer replacement roots to secure a denture or bridge. This approach may save you money and time because you’ll not need a replacement root for each lost tooth.
A dental bridge completes your smile with the help of our dental crowns. The bridge is a tooth or two teeth between dental crowns. Your dentist can cap healthy teeth with these crowns. This forces the restoring teeth to close the gap in your smile.
A bridge—like a dental implant—is a fixed tooth replacement option.
Dentures and partials have been around for a long time, but today’s modern designs make them popular with even discerning patients.
Dentures and partials are plates or arches of restoring teeth that are fully removable for cleaning and during sleep.
