So, you’re missing a tooth—or a few!
An apple a day will not take care of this one, unfortunately. It’s time to consider dentures or dental implants. A variety of personal and practical factors will determine which solution is best for your new smile. Don’t feel lost among all the pros and cons of choosing a tooth-replacement plan. Dupont Family Dentistry in Fort Wayne is an experienced practice you can trust to help guide you on your journey from missing teeth toward a complete, natural, and healthy smile.
Not your grandma’s dentures
Thankfully, time and technology have greatly improved the denture experience for our patients. Today, dentures look and feel more natural than ever before. Dentures are a whole set of false teeth held into your gums with secure bonding glue. This can be an affordable option if you need to replace multiple teeth. For added stability, functionality, and peace of mind, dentures can also be secured with dental implants (implant-supported dentures).
Added security with dental implants
If you are only missing one tooth, if your jaw isn’t healthy enough for traditional dentures, or you would like to stabilize your dentures for the most life-like solution, dental implants may be an ideal treatment method. Dr. Diehl and Dr. Hemphill use 3D CT scans and digital imaging to guide and place implants for a secure and permanent tooth replacement solution. Dental implants are tooth root replacements that help preserve the health of your mouth and jawbone and serve as anchors for tooth replacements including crowns, bridges, and dentures.
If you are suffering from missing teeth, you don’t have to grin and bear it. We have many different tooth replacement solutions for you to consider. A quick consultation with Dr. Diehl and Dr. Hemphill will determine which option is best for you.
Don’t put off dental work that will give you a more confident smile. Everyone deserves to present his or her best self, and a complete, healthy smile is your best asset!
