What Happens if I Do Nothing?
If a missing tooth is located towards the back of your mouth where it can’t be seen, why not just ignore it? Unfortunately, untreated tooth loss only tends to lead to even more tooth loss. The exposed gum tissue is much more likely to develop an infection, and this will erode the base of the remaining teeth until they too fall out. Instead, this can be prevented simply by replacing any missing teeth as soon as possible.
Dental bridges are able to replace just one tooth or even up to three in a row using the nearby teeth for support. The prosthetic teeth are bonded to crowns located on either side to keep them secure within the mouth. Bridges are designed to not only look extremely natural, but also restore a patient’s normal bite strength, enabling them to eat a wider variety of goods with ease. They can also be held in place using dental implants to provide even more stability.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
For patients missing teeth throughout their mouth or even an entire row, dentures offer a reliable and affordable solution to replace them all at once. Today, they are made using ceramic teeth attached to an acrylic base that is designed to resemble gum tissue. The end result is a prosthetic that is not only natural-looking but strong and durable as well. To ensure the perfect fit, Dr. Calderwood specially-designs every prosthetic for each patient.
Dental implants are truly special within the world of dentistry because they do something no other treatment can: replace an entire tooth. Instead of just bringing back the crown, implants restore the root of a tooth within the jawbone as well. Topped with custom-made restorations, this gives them a look, feel, and strength that can only be matched by real teeth. Even better, Dr. Calderwood is one of the few dentists in the area who is able to perform the entire procedure himself, helping patients save time and money while rebuilding their smiles.
