Whether you need to replace one or several missing teeth, we have the treatment you need.
For many, tooth loss is an unfortunate fact of life. But with advances in technology it’s now easier than ever to get your smile back. Learnmore about the different treatments your Lakewood dentist Dr. Ronald Morse offers to regain a full smile.
If you are looking for a way to replace all or more of your teeth quickly and inexpensively then you won’t be able to find a treatment that fits your needs better than dentures. While dentures won’t offer the same benefits of other treatments like implants, if you want to regain your smile in only a couple visits then this custom-made dental prosthesis may just be the way to go.
If you still have some healthy teeth remaining and only need to replace one or several teeth then consider dental bridges. A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth in the middle with a dental crown on either side. The dental crowns are then cemented over neighboring teeth to secure the bridge into place.
If you are looking for a long-term solution to replacing one or more missing teeth and aren’t looking for a quick fix then consider the benefits of getting dental implants. These small metal posts act like tooth roots to anchor a dental crown, bridge or a full set of dentures in place.
A single implant is used to replace one missing tooth while multiple implants can be placed to support complete dentures. Even though it may take up to a year or more to get your new tooth you’ll find that you have a new tooth that looks and feels like a real one.
Don’t let tooth loss affect your oral health. Turn to your dentist in Lakewood for the treatment you need to get a healthy smile. Call our office today to schedule a consultation. You’ll be happy you did!
