Missing a tooth can cause a variety of problems, both aesthetically and functionally. It can affect your ability to chew and speak properly, and it can also lead to shifting of the remaining teeth and changes in your bite. At East Geelong Dental Practice, we understand the impact that missing teeth can have on your life and we are dedicated to helping you find a solution that will restore your smile and your confidence.
We offer a range of treatment options for missing teeth, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They are designed to look and function just like natural teeth, and can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. The implant itself is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, and it serves as the foundation for the replacement tooth.
Bridges are another option for replacing missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns that are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, with a replacement tooth or teeth in between. They are a great option for replacing multiple missing teeth in a row.
Dentures are removable appliances that can be used to replace multiple missing teeth. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and they are held in place by suction or dental adhesive. They are a more affordable option than implants or bridges.
At East Geelong Dental Practice, we use the latest technology and techniques to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable and successful as possible.
