What are my tooth replacement options?
Anytime you need treatment in our Yulee, FL dental office, we will provide you with all of your treatment options so that you can make an educated decision when it comes to your oral health. Losing a tooth can be particularly traumatic. We will work closely with you, offering advice, so that you achieve the best outcome possible.
Some of the tooth replacement options we offer are:
Dental implants – Titanium screws that support a dental crown. Many dentists believe that dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth because they also help to preserve your bone, last a long time, and allow for greater freedom in your diet.
Fixed dental bridge – A dental bridge is a good option for patients who do not qualify for dental implants or want a different option. A bridge consists of two crowns that fit over the teeth adjacent to your missing tooth. An artificial tooth is suspended between the two crowns and will fill the gap in your smile in addition to keeping your teeth from drifting toward the gap in your smile.
Partial dentures – For patients with multiple missing teeth, a partial denture uses some of your remaining teeth as an anchor and completes your smile. Dr. Gordon designs your partial denture to match your natural teeth.
Complete or full dentures – Complete dentures replace teeth for patients missing all of their upper or lower teeth. Our dentures are attractive, natural-looking, and durable. We use the best materials and work with highly skilled dental labs to create dentures that fit great, feel great, and look amazing.
