Dental Restorations for Missing Teeth

Posted .

At North Point Dental Group, LLC, in Corvallis, Oregon, Dr. Mark Swensen and Dr. Glenn Balkins, offers dental implants for our patients who have lost a tooth. Teeth can be lost due to tooth decay and gum disease, injury or trauma, smoking, and age. When this happens, your teeth can be replaced There are various ways our dentist can replace missing teeth, so that you can smile with confidence again.

–Dental Implants: These are the most natural-looking replacements for lost teeth. They are stable, last longer than other options, and keep the jawbone under the missing tooth stimulated so that it doesn’t deteriorate, and maintaining the facial structure.

–Dental Bridge: Tooth-supported bridges are designed to damage healthy teeth because they are ground to allow adding a bridge across the teeth that will then hold the crown.

–Partial Dentures: A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

–Complete Denture: A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentists may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
