Why Choose Oxford Dental Care for Replacing Missing Teeth?

- Dentist with Years of Experience and Training
When a patient is missing one to three teeth in a row, we often recommend a dental bridge. This restoration is made of three or more dental crowns fused together. Each crown at the end is left hollow so that the bridge can be affixed on top of the teeth located next to the gap. Then, the center crown fills in the space and restores the missing tooth. This keeps the healthy teeth you have in their correct positions in the arch.
One of the most popular ways to replace lost teeth is with dentures. Although the materials have come a long way, the concept of dentures is essentially the same as it was hundreds of years ago. Today, an acrylic, gum-colored base with prosthetic teeth attached rests on top of the gums. Thanks to technology, we are able to create dentures that fit more comfortably than ever before, whether you need a partial or full denture.
Are you looking for a more permanent solution for tooth loss? Traditional replacements only address the visible part of the tooth and need to be replaced every few years. However, dental implants go deeper and provide a substitute for the root structure as well as the crown. As a result, these replacement teeth tend to last for decades longer and to be much more stable. If you want to enjoy a healthy smile again, dental implants may be the right choice for you!
