Patients with one or more missing teeth often decide to forego replacement due to time, money, fear of pain, and other valid concerns. However, the cost of skipping this treatment may just be your dental health. Missing teeth have numerous consequences including dental drift (the shifting of teeth to fill in gaps), lost bone density, and changing facial shapes due to diminished gum tissue volume. At Foundation Dental Solutions, our expert team offers a variety of tooth replacement options to meet any needs. We believe in offering patients the right solutions to their oral health problems, and we say so right in our name.
Dental Crown & Bridge Tooth Replacement
Patients missing 1 tooth or 2 to 3 consecutive teeth may want to choose permanent, stable crown and bridge tooth replacement. A crown and bridge is crafted at a ceramics lab and consists of one or more replacement teeth attached to abutment crowns. The crowns are placed over healthy surrounding teeth to hold the prosthetic tooth in place.
Full and Partial Dentures in Arlington
For centuries, removable dentures have been the go to tooth replacement option for patients with numerous missing teeth. Partial dentures fill in gaps left by non-consecutive tooth loss, and full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth. Innovations in materials, techniques, and technologies make removable full and partial dentures more secure, comfortable, and effective than ever before. We use only the best materials for long lasting, durable dentures.
Dental Implant Supported Restorations
The most versatile tooth replacement option available, dental implants support a replacement prosthetic for any number of missing teeth. Dental implants restorations consist of titanium posts placed below the gum line to mimic the form and function of the tooth’s natural root structure. After a period of healing during which the implant and jawbone fuse, a prosthetic tooth replacement can be attached permanently or using attachments that allow for removal. Whether to select permanent or removable dental implants is personal decision, but our team is happy to discuss the pros and cons of each option to help you choose the tooth replacement that’s right for you.
