If you’re missing teeth — or have one missing tooth — it can be embarrassing. It can also be a practical concern because it’s more difficult to eat. Having missing teeth also affects dental health as bone loss and shifting of your remaining teeth takes place the longer you have the missing tooth or missing teeth.
“We want to give our patients options for replacing missing teeth,” says Dr. Jergins of Clearwater dental office, ClearWhite Dental. “We know that there is not a one size fits all option for missing teeth, so we work with each patient to find out what’s best for her.”
So what are your options for treating missing teeth?
Dental Implants. Dental implants are the missing teeth option that is most like natural teeth. Take a look at these 7 Benefits of Dental Implants.
Bridges. These are also a good option for missing teeth. Talk to Dr. Jergins about either a fixed bridge or a removable bridge.
Dentures. If you’re missing many teeth, dentures are another great option. Dr. Jergins offers a free denture consultation, so give him a call to find out if a denture is a good option for your missing teeth.
