Replacing Missing TeethDuring your visit to our Bedford dental office, one of our skilled dentists will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the overall health of your teeth. Treatment planning is a vital part of creating your ideal smile. At Davis Family Dental Care, we take our time to address your dental needs and cover all bases before suggesting the appropriate solution for your smile. We may offer:
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are a small, titanium post that mimics your natural tooth root. Over time, the dental implant will fuse with the jawbone. Once the dental implant is fused with the jawbone, one of our high trained dentists will attach a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture as your final restoration. Although dental implants are one of the most successful tooth replacement options, not everyone is an ideal candidate to receive them. In order to receive dental implants, a patient must have an adequate amount of healthy jawbone structure. During your comprehensive exam, Dr. Paul Davis, Dr. Davis, or Dr. Drennan will determine if dental implants are right for you
- Dental Bridge: Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Traditionally, a dental bridge is supported by a dental crown that is used to hold the false tooth in place. For a more durable solution, a dental bridge can be secured using dental implants.
- Dentures: Dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace either the top row or bottom row of teeth. Dentures can look and function like your natural teeth with proper care and maintenance. For patients looking for a more durable and reliable tooth replacement options, dentures can be fixed into place using dental implants.
