Replace Multiple Teeth In Las Vegas
Patients have several options to replace multiple teeth, whether their tooth loss is a result of illness, injury, periodontal disease, or tooth decay. Every patient is different, and only you and your dentist can make the right choice for replacing multiple teeth.
Dr. Kevin Khorshid has dedicated his practice to helping patients who are suffering from tooth loss. He and his staff understand just how sensitive and often how embarrassing this issue can be for patients. That’s why they offer many options for replacing multiple teeth and make recommendations based on your overall health, current oral health situation, and your own personal input. Patient comfort is important to the team, not just when you’re in the exam chair, but also when you leave and face the world with your new smile.
Dental Implants To Replace Multiple Teeth
Dental Implants act like your natural teeth in both form and function. They are made up of a very small titanium post that is inserted under the gum into the jaw, and a dental crown that covers the post. The post acts like a root, anchoring the new tooth in place. A dental crown is created to match your surrounding teeth and is cemented to the implant. Dental implants are strong and permanent and are very easy to care for. They require regular brushing and flossing, just like your natural teeth, and if they are well taken care of, can last a lifetime.
Dental Implants can be used to replace multiple teeth throughout the mouth. So if, for example, you are missing a tooth on the top and two on the bottom, implants can easily solve the problem and give you a brand new smile. Most patients are eligible for dental implants, but unfortunately not everyone is a candidate. Dr. Khorshid will let you know after a complete exam whether or not you are eligible for dental implants.
Partial Dentures To Replace Multiple Teeth
Partial dentures are another option to replace multiple teeth. Partial Dentures can be custom made to suit any number and combinations of gaps. Even if you’re missing two teeth on one side, and one on another, Dr. Khorshid can create a prosthetic to fit you.
Partial Dentures are designed to match the color and size of your natural teeth. There are a variety of ways that they can be held in place, but they “grip” your remaining teeth to stay in position. Partial dentures can be removed for eating, sleeping, and cleaning of the prosthetic.
Dental Bridges To Replace Multiple Teeth
Dental Bridges are special prosthetics that are permanently held in place by either your natural teeth or by dental implants. The bridge itself is made up of two crowns that are placed on the teeth on either side of your gap, and they are connected to a false tooth that “bridges” the space left by missing teeth. The crowns are typically placed on the surrounding healthy teeth, called “abutment” teeth, but in some cases, those teeth are too weak or decayed to support a crown. In those cases, Dr. Kevin may remove the abutment teeth and replace them with dental implants.
Choosing The Right Options To Replace Multiple Teeth
Your mouth is as individual as you are. The right option to replace your missing teeth depends upon your medical history, your oral health, and your own personal preferences. Choosing the right option is a decision that can only be made with a leader in tooth replacement, like Dr. Kevin at DentalImplantsLasVegas.org. He and his staff work with patients every day to help them make the right choice for restoring their smile. They understand how difficult it can be not only deal with missing teeth, but also how nerve wracking it can be to see a dentist.
