A Natural Solution to Missing Teeth

There are many things about your body that you can ignore or “let go” without too many problems. You can let your hair grow without getting it cut. You can ignore small scrapes and bruises. You can even go about with broken toes (always check with a doctor first). However, there are some things that just can’t be ignored.

A missing tooth is one of those things that can’t be let go. Here in our Fredericksburg, VA office, we see patients seek a dental implant who thought it’d be ok to have that gap in their mouth for an extended period of time. It didn’t take long for them to find out that wasn’t the case.

You see, a missing tooth has both physical and psychological effects. Your gums will feel sore and irritated as you try to chew food on an empty space. Your surrounding teeth will try to spread out and take over the space, which will cause misalignment in your smile. These physical ailments are a hassle, but the psychological damage is more concerning.

Studies show that patients missing a tooth are more likely to be depressed and struggle with anxiety. Imagine never feeling good about your smile! It’s sure to take its toll. Luckily, we have solutions that allow you to get your smile back to the most natural look and feel possible!

Traditional Solutions Don’t Feel Natural

One of the common problems with missing teeth is the restorations available that just don’t cut it! Your tooth is a natural thing that works and feels like a part of your body. You use your teeth thousands of times a day as you chew food and speak. You don’t want to settle for a dental restoration that doesn’t feel perfectly natural, like dentures or bridges.

Don’t get the wrong idea, we use dentures and bridges here in the office when it is appropriate, but these restorations have shortcomings. They often need to be replaced about every five years due to bacteria buildup and damage. Plus, they aren’t comfortable. There is no real anchor for these restorations except for your remaining teeth, which leads to a lot of shifting and unpleasant sensations.

A Better Solution: Dental Implants

Every patient deserves a better solution. We believe the best solution is one that gets your smile back to its most natural state. We can’t give you another tooth, but we can come pretty close with dental implants. No matter how many teeth you are missing or where in your mouth they are missing from, dental implants allow you to get the results you are looking for. Not only do they look great, but the titanium implant is a bio-friendly material that your bones will readily accept!

Single Tooth – A single tooth restoration is for patients who are trying to fill one small gap in their smile. The dental implant fits so comfortably in your smile that you’ll forget you ever lost that tooth!

Multiple Teeth – Often you don’t stop by losing just one tooth. That one tooth might have led to the loss of several teeth in a row. Dental implants are a great solution because one or two implants can support several teeth!

Whole Smile – Are you at a point of having few to no teeth at all? Dental implants can offer you solutions with our amazing All on 4 and All on 6 dental implant solutions. These procedures allow you to replace every tooth in your mouth on the support of 4 or 6 implants per arch.

Stabilizing Dentures – Already have dentures? You don’t have to lose your investment! We can use mini implants to stabilize your dentures. The implants will provide a secure foundation for your dentures to snap into so that you can enjoy every bite of food without the risk of slippery dentures!
