Tooth replacement is a highly requested procedure at Priority Dental in Casper. When patients ask about tooth restoration, we tell them about fixed (or traditional) bridges and dental implants.
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth—called a pontic—is fused to porcelain crowns on both sides of the missing tooth.
Tooth Implants Replace the Root and Crown
Dental implants are also popular and can often be a better choice. A dental implant incorporates a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post fuses with the bone to provide a strong and stable foundation for the replacement tooth.
After it has fused, a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields incredible results.
Preserving Facial Contour
Both of these restoration options maintain or restore facial contour and permit you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite problems, as well.
Tooth implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many men and women have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration procedures.
