Getting Rid of Gaps in Your Grin

When you lose a tooth or have one removed, you need to make a decision about what to do with the empty space. Some choose to leave it alone, but this decision can have severe consequences for your oral health in the long term; notably, your jawbone could shrink, your remaining teeth could shift and become misaligned, and your risk for painful infection will increase significantly. Luckily, there are plenty of options for replacing missing teeth in our San Antonio, TX dental office, and if you call to schedule a consultation, Dr. Patel can show you which one is right for your smile.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a non-removable tooth replacement solution that’s often recommended when there’s just one gap you need to fill. The bridge is made by combining two dental crowns with one or more prosthetic teeth. The crowns will anchor the rest of the prosthetic to your remaining teeth; you don’t have to worry about a bridge slipping whenever you speak or eat, so you can have full confidence in your newly restored grin.


Dentures & Partials

Of course, you can’t discuss replacing teeth without bringing up dentures. They provide an affordable option for replacing many teeth at once, and they can be designed to match the shape, color, and overall appearance of your natural teeth. People who are missing all of their teeth can get full dentures, but if you still have a few teeth remaining, you may be eligible for partial dentures instead. Both can be taken out of your mouth for oral hygiene purposes.

Dental Implants

Before dental implants, dentists could only restore the top portion of a missing tooth. Now we can place implant posts that act as new roots. This gives your new smile a firmer foundation so that it stays in place no matter what, and it gives the jaw a source of stimulation to keep the bone from shrinking. Our dental office offers complete dental implant services, meaning we’re able to place implants in-house and handle the restoration as well; call today to learn more and take the first step.
