Multiple Missing Teeth
Multiple Missing Teeth in Charlotte, NC
If you have multiple missing teeth, dental implants are considered the best method of restoration available to you. While there are other methods available, none can offer the security of dental implants. Charlotte periodontist Dr. Shannon Parsons offers single dental implants, bridges, and implant supported bridges for the replacement of multiple missing teeth.
Missing Teeth Replaced by Single Dental Implants in Charlotte, NC
You may opt to have each tooth replaced with a single dental implant, which most closely replicates the look and function of your missing teeth. When you have single dental implants in Charlotte, a titanium post and crown are placed at the site of each of your missing teeth. This is ideal to stop the bone loss, which wouldn’t occur because the titanium posts can stimulate the jaw bone as your natural tooth root would and halt the deterioration process.
A Partial Bridge Instead of Dental Implants in Charlotte, NC
A partial bridge may be used to replace your missing teeth instead of single dental implants. In Charlotte, the dental bridge is widely used but not considered optimal due to the fact that your natural teeth must be reshaped in order to accommodate the dental bridge. Also, the dental bridge does nothing to address the bone loss that occurs at the site of missing teeth.
A Dental Bridge Supported by Dental Implants in Charlotte, NC
With this method, dental implants are placed and utilized to anchor a dental bridge. The titanium posts are placed strategically along the gum line where you are missing teeth. The crowns of the dental bridge would be affixed to the implant posts instead of your natural teeth. This yields many benefits for our patients. For example, bone loss is stopped by dental implants. Charlotte patients also find the stability improves the quality of the chewing function. Lastly, your healthy teeth do not need to be altered to restore your missing teeth.
If you are considering a dental bridge or even a full set of dentures to replace missing teeth, dental implants in Charlotte may be your best option.
