Options for Missing Teeth

Naturally Beautiful. Naturally Healthy.

Are you missing one or more of your teeth? You’re not alone. Tooth loss is a common problem in adults, as roughly 30% of Americans are without some of their natural teeth. When you lose a tooth, it can affect your ability to eat or speak normally, and your confidence may suffer. It doesn’t have to. There are options for replacing your missing teeth that can actually restore your smile to a healthy state.

Traditional Options

Depending on your situation, there are a few traditional dental options available if you are missing teeth:

  • Fixed bridges: Uses two adjacent healthy teeth as anchors for a prosthetic crown replacement
  • Partials: A removable type of denture that replaces a series of missing teeth
  • Full dentures: An appliance that replicates an entire set of teeth and gum tissue, secured by suction or adhesive
  • Dental implants: Uses a surgically placed post as a “root” for a crown replacement

Are Implants the Best Option?

Generally, anyone who is healthy enough to undergo a routine tooth extraction is a good candidate for dental implants. Because they replace the tooth below the surface, and into the jawbone, they are the most natural option for missing teeth. They keep your bone from deteriorating due to non-use, and stop healthy remaining teeth from shifting to account for the gap left by lost teeth. Other traditional methods don’t promote oral health in the same way as dental implants, and in some case, may even cause wear on your other teeth. Visit our Cordova and Collierville locations to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.
