Speak to Antioch, CA area dentist about which tooth replacement solution is right for you
The smile is made to function for a lifetime, but certain conditions can result in unwanted tooth loss. Patients may experience severe periodontal disease which causes them to lose their natural teeth or require them to be extracted. Failed root canals, large cavities, and infection are common causes for removing teeth. Injury can result in lost teeth that cannot be reattached. When patients are dealing with these issues, it is essential that they work with an Antioch, CA area dentist to discuss the benefits of replacement.
Replacing missing teeth can be done in a myriad of ways. At East Bay Dental Care, our team offers all three possible options for patients to consider including dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
The most economical solution for our patients is that of dentures. Dentures come in two varieties including full and partial. Full dentures are used by patients to replace an entire arch of teeth and partials are best for one or more teeth within the arch. Dentures are often covered by dental insurance policies as well.
Bridges are restorations made from false teeth called pontics and crowns. These are fused together to create a repair that is bonded over the adjacent teeth for support. This restoration can replace one or more teeth in a row. It is not removable though more affordable than a dental implant.
Patients seeking permanent solutions are often encouraged to consider dental implants. These restorations are made of titanium metal and act as a natural tooth root replacement. They are restored with a crown, bridge, or denture and provide optimum stability and strength.
