If you are missing multiple teeth, you know all too well how inconvenient and embarrassing it is to have an incomplete smile. Seeking treatment can resolve those issues and even prevent future oral health problems from developing. Dr. Steven Feit, a specialist dentist in Boca Raton, has already helped countless patients to discover the benefits of tooth replacement via dental implants and custom-made prosthetics. He would be happy to help you as well!
In the vast majority of cases, dental implants in Boca Raton are the best way to replace any number of missing teeth. However, other treatments are available:
Crown and bridgework. A traditional dental bridge consists of two crowns, which go over the teeth adjacent to an empty space. The crowns support artificial teeth between them to “bridge” the gap. When such a bridge is made by an expert in dental prosthetics like Dr. Feit, it can be extremely natural-looking and provide excellent function.
Full and partial dentures. A full denture replaces an entire arch of missing teeth, whereas a partial denture replaces multiple teeth at various places throughout an arch. Both types of prostheses are removable. They also both consist of artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Natural suction, metal attachments, or a mild adhesive help dentures to remain in place.
If you are interested in receiving dental implants to replace your missing teeth, visit Dr. Feit for a consultation. He’ll evaluate your oral structures and your oral health before he designs a personalized plan to restore your smile. If dental implants are an appropriate treatment for you, Dr. Feit will refer you to a highly skilled oral surgeon who will place the implants in your jaw. Later, you will return to Dr. Feit so he can design and place your implant-support dental bridge. Since Dr. Feit is a prosthodontist with an in-depth understanding of bite forces, oral anatomy, and dental aesthetics, you can be confident that your restored smile will look, feel, and function as naturally as possible.
