If you’re missing a tooth, whether it was a blow to the face, a cavity, or another reason, then you need to consider replacing it. Our dentist, Dr. Alexander Santos, encourages this because leaving a gap in your smile can cause misalignment issues, which can lead to cavities and even gum disease. So, make sure to call our office and schedule an appointment to get your tooth replaced.

There are many treatments that can help you. Some of those treatments are:

-A dental bridge (A dental bridge is a long-lasting restoration that is made of a false tooth and two dental crowns. The bridge is anchored into place by the crowns because they cover the natural teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. The false tooth fills the space in the smile.)

-A dental implant (A dental implant acts as a replacement tooth as well as its root. It is made of a titanium post, an attachment piece, and a dental crown.)

-Dentures (If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, complete dentures might be right for you. If you’re just missing one or more teeth in a row, partial dentures might be right for you.)
