Do you have one or more missing teeth? Have you been avoiding the dentist? We recommend that patients replace missing and lost teeth as soon as possible. Our friendly and compassionate dental team creates a judgment-free space for patients where they can discuss their concerns and get the care they need.
Dr. Salari provides treatment for missing teeth in her Annandale, VA dental office. Replacing missing teeth can prevent overcrowding, and as a result, tooth decay. Even if one tooth is missing, the remaining natural teeth eventually shift to fill in the gap. These teeth can overcrowd and be difficult to clean.
Treatments for Missing Teeth
We utilize dental implants and implant-supported restorations to treat patients with one or more lost teeth:
- Dental Implants: Made of titanium posts, dental implants are strong and durable tooth replacements. Tooth implants offer a strong replacement because they fuse with the jawbone. They are also covered by an abutment and dental crown. Many patients who receive dental implants and implant restorations may soon forget that they had missing teeth before. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
- Dental Bridges: For patients with multiple consecutive missing teeth, we recommend dental bridges. These dental prosthetics are either secured by dental implants or crown-capped adjacent teeth. With dental bridges, patients are able to bite and speak comfortably. Implant-secured dental bridges last longer than removable bridges and support the bone and jaw health of our dental patients.
- Dentures: Dentures are best suited for patients with whole rows or even arches of lost teeth. Traditional dentures require messy adhesives and can slip around the mouth. Implant-supported dentures do not require as much upkeep or frequent repairs as removable traditional dentures.
