Treatments for Missing Teeth

Posted .

If you have one or more missing teeth, you’re probably wondering what our dentists, husband and wife team, Dr. Daniel Sahutske and Dr. Donna Sahutske, can do for you and your smile. Having missing teeth can make eating and speaking difficult and it can even affect the self-esteem as well as the entire oral health. Fortunately, our dentist has many treatments that can help you, so it’s best to call our office and schedule an appointment. Some treatments available include:

-A dental bridge (A dental bridge is a false tooth surrounded by dental crowns. The crowns anchor to the remaining teeth on both sides of the gap while the false tooth fills the gap in the smile.)

-A dental implant (A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth. On that post is an attachment piece that will hold a dental crown, which is also known as the replacement tooth.)

-Dentures (If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, complete dentures might be right for you. If you’re just missing one or more teeth in a row, partial dentures might be right for you.)
