Healthy Mouth Tips

If you are missing teeth, you may be embarrassed, and you may find yourself avoiding social events or smiling around your family and friends. This is no way to live your life and you may feel as though you are all alone, but the truth is, you are not. In fact, the average adult is missing at least three teeth or has three decayed teeth according to the American Dental Association.

You may have lost your tooth or several teeth for a number of reasons from experiencing an accident with injuries to tooth decay. No matter what the reason for your missing teeth, there are options to replace them and the team at CS Family Dental can help you.

Below, we will introduce you to some of the tooth replacement options available in our Denver, CO office. If you would like to learn more about any of them, we invite you to call us.

One of the first tooth replacement options is dentures. Dentures are one of the top patient choices as they are removable and do not require any surgery. They come in either full or partial options. Dentures are not fixed in one position, so there is an adjustment period to get used to them being in your mouth. This option is ideal for patients who are not good candidates for the other options below.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are rising in popularity and becoming a common choice for tooth replacement. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into your jawbone. When the jaw heals, a crown is placed on top of the post. This tooth replacement option lasts for decades and mimics a natural smile in look and feel.

Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is another tooth replacement option that is used to bridge a gap between missing teeth. Not everyone is a candidate for a dental bridge because a patient MUST have supporting teeth on both sides of the gap. The bridge has a mechanism that is secured in place using those surrounding teeth, so your teeth must be healthy and free from any decay.
