3 Options for Replacing Teeth
It’s hard to feel confident with a gappy smile, and avoiding meals with friends or hiding your smile reduces the enjoyment of everyday life. At Chatswood Dental Associates, we help patients get their smiles back by providing teeth replacement options, including dental implants, in our Chatswood, NSW dental surgery.
Let’s go over three ways we replace missing teeth and find the right one for you.
Dental implants have been a reliable teeth replacement option for decades, and with their increased availability in recent years, they are growing in popularity. Opting for dental implants means that you will have the most reliable, long-term solution to tooth loss. Not only do they look natural, but they also provide unsurpassed stability because they integrate with the jawbone.
If you struggle with ill-fitting dentures, dental implants can secure them and prevent shifting of falling, which can cause embarrassing moments.
As an alternative to dental implants, patients often choose to complete their smiles with a highly aesthetic ceramic bridge. We will match your dental bridge to your natural tooth colour for seamless results.
While they are reliable, dental bridges do require crowns on two healthy adjacent teeth to secure an artificial tooth in place, filling the space left by a missing tooth.
Dentures or Partial Dentures
For patients who have multiple missing teeth, dentures provide a solution to replacing many teeth (or even all of them) at once. Both complete and partial dentures look more natural and fit more accurately than in decades past.
For patients who require full-mouth extractions, going without teeth in the weeks following surgery can be a concern. At our Chatswood dental surgery, we can design immediate dentures for you to wear on the same day as your extraction appointment.
