Even if the gap left by a missing tooth isn’t visible when you smile, you’ll still have an imbalanced bite, dental drift, and an increased risk of gum disease to worry about – to say nothing about the way your ability to eat might be affected. There is no shortage of options for replacing missing teeth, and Dr. Nawrocki can use his expertise to determine which one is the best for your specific grin. Call us today to schedule a consultation to discuss your options to replace missing teeth in Cocoa Beach, FL.
A dental bridge is used to quite literally “bridge” the gap between teeth. The crowns at either end of the restoration are attached to natural teeth next to the empty space (also known as the abutment teeth). The prosthetic or prosthetics between these crowns will act as your new teeth. If you have lost three or more teeth in a row, then your dental bridge can be attached to implants for additional strength and stability.
Today’s dentures are much less bulky than the ones that you might remember your parents or grandparents using. Not only are they smaller and sleeker, but they also fit more comfortably in your mouth, and they can be personalized to look as natural as possible. Unlike other forms of tooth replacement, dentures are removable, which is helpful for giving them a thorough cleaning. That said, dentures can also be attached to implants in order to fully recover your bite strength.
Are you looking for a permanent way to replace your teeth? We can place dental implants in your jaw as a long-term solution. The posts can last for decades, and the support they provide for crowns and other prosthetics allow them to feel and function like real teeth. Unlike other dental offices that might have to refer you to other dental offices to have dental implants placed, Dr. Nawrocki and the rest of our team can handle the entire procedure in-house.
