Replacing a missing tooth is something that all adults struggling with tooth loss should consider. After all, treatment not only maintains your appearance, but it keeps the rest of your teeth healthy and properly functioning as well. Here at ParkLin Dental in Katonah, NY, Dr. Enyoung Park and Dr. Terry Lin offer several different options for replacing your missing teeth. Two of the most popular treatment options are outlined below:
Made from a pink plastic base for the gum tissue and realistic ceramic or resin for the teeth, removable dentures are a popular option for replacing natural teeth. Dentures may be full or partial, depending on your needs. Full dentures replace all of one's permanent teeth, while partial dentures attach to the remaining teeth to fill in empty spaces. For those who have bone loss and other health conditions that prevent them from having dental implants, dentures are a good alternative. Regular checkups with your Katonah dentist will ensure that your dentures are well-maintained and fitting properly.
For a permanent solution to missing teeth, your Katonah dentist often recommends dental implants. These restorations offer "the whole package" because they replace an absent tooth from the bottom upwards. The post of the implant, which is made from lightweight metal, acts as the roots of your new tooth, while the ceramic crown is attached on top. Unlike dentures, dental implants never need to be removed or adjusted. The result is a long-lasting and low-maintenance tooth replacement that gives you the freedom to eat, talk, and smile as normal.
