Missing teeth, even just one, can lead to a cascade of dental problems and have a detrimental effect on overall oral health. When a tooth is lost, a chain reaction is set into motion: jaw bone in the area of the lost tooth begins to shrink and affect the bite, periodontal disease can take hold and remaining teeth begin to shift position. Replacing a lost tooth, or teeth, quickly is important for maintaining a healthy, functional smile.
Dr. Bard Levey has the advanced training and experience to offer patients with missing teeth a range of effective, lasting treatment options. He works with patients on an individual basis to educate them on available options and help them choose the best solution for their unique needs, goals and budget. Replacing missing teeth will restore dental health- and your confidence!
Missing Teeth: Treatment Options
During a one on one consultation in our Croton On Hudson dentist office, Dr. Levey will perform a thorough assessment of your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine the treatment option(s) most suitable for you. Dr. Levey uses advanced technology and will recommend the highest quality materials to ensure your treatment provides lasting tooth replacement that looks and feels natural.
Treatment options include:
- Dentures: for patients missing all of their upper or lower arch of teeth, Dr. Levey can provide cosmetic dentures for a natural looking smile. Dentures can be secured with dental implants for a permanent solution that provides superior patient satisfaction and lasting results.
- Dental implants: recommended for a single tooth or to secure a denture, dental implants provide the most natural looking and functioning tooth replacement.
- Dental bridge: a dental bridge can replace one or several teeth and is secured by a dental implant or natural tooth, often strengthened by a dental crown.
