At Morris County Dental Associates, we know that losing a tooth to injury or decay can be difficult. Having gaps in your smile may make you lose self-confidence. However, there’s a way to create a more balanced smile with natural-looking results. Dr. Ira Goldberg is a dentist in Succasunna, New Jersey that restores missing teeth with dental implants, dental bridges, and full and partial dentures. Dr. Goldberg is dedicated to helping patients receive fuller smiles and treating dental concerns including missing teeth.
Why Should I Replace My Missing Teeth?
Left untreated missing teeth can cause gums to recede leaving remaining teeth susceptible to sensitivity and tooth loss. Patients with lost or missing teeth are at a higher risk of developing gum disease and tooth decay. Other common problems include:
- Shifting teeth
- Bone loss
- Crooked teeth
- Facial sagging
- Speech problems
- Difficulty chewing
- Difficulty biting
Types of Missing Teeth Treatments
Dr. Goldberg is a restorative dentist that specializes in dental implants. He provides implants and implant-secured solutions:
Made of titanium posts, dental implants are a stable solution that acts as artificial tooth roots. Dental implants are surgically inserted and are then allowed to heal over a period of months. Then a permanent dental crown is attached for the final restoration. Dental implants can also be used to secure dental bridges or dentures and partial dentures.
This treatment effectively replaces one or more teeth with the aid of dental crowns and, at times, dental implants. Dental bridges can be removable, but an implant-secured dental bridge often provides a more secure fit. Many patients also find that secured dental bridges make it easier for them to bite and chew.
Dentures and Partials
Patients who are missing multiple teeth or whole arches of teeth can benefit from full and partial dentures. Like dental bridges, dentures can also be secured with dental implants. Dentures and partials also restore the form and function of teeth.
