By the age of 50, the average American will have lost about 12 of their teeth. It’s possible to continue your everyday life without filling in the gaps in your grin, but if you do so, you’ll only wear down your remaining teeth faster and put yourself at risk for a painfully misaligned bite. Instead, you should speak to our skilled prosthodontist and other specialists at Little Rock Family Dental Care about dental implants and other prosthetics that can make a broken smile whole again. Call us today to schedule an appointment if you’re ready to move past your tooth loss.
Why simply place a traditional dental prosthetic in your mouth when we can give it the support and stability that natural teeth enjoy? We offer titanium posts called dental implants that can be inserted into the jaw. Once the bone heals, a crown can be placed, and it will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth thanks to the implant acting as a root. Because dental implants have numerous unique advantages, we recommend them to any patient who needs new teeth and has good oral health overall.
After taking an impression of your mouth, we’ll create a dental bridge by suspending one or more artificial teeth between two crowns. We can then quite literally “bridge” the gap in your smile with the restoration; generally, this is done by attaching the crowns to natural teeth, but sometimes they can rest on implants instead. Bridges can be used to replace a single tooth, but they’re also useful if several teeth in a row are missing.
Just one missing tooth can seriously limit your diet and drastically lower your confidence, and naturally, the consequences of losing all of your teeth are even more severe. Fortunately, as extreme as this problem may seem, there’s a centuries-old solution that’s more reliable than ever: dentures. Whether you need full dentures to take the place of an entire arch or partial dentures to fill in a few gaps, we can provide you with a beautiful, well-fitted prosthetic that allows you to enjoy life to the fullest again.
