Multiple Tooth Replacement – Waco, TX
A Wide Range of Restoration Options to Recreate Your Smile
Following the loss of several teeth, it’s important to schedule an appointment to visit Premier Family Dental as soon as possible. When lost teeth go unreplaced, the supportive bone and soft tissue can begin to breakdown, making it more difficult to replace missing teeth and negatively impacting your overall oral health. In our Waco dental office, we offer a number of multiple tooth replacement solutions to meet your needs, budget, and schedule. When you’re ready to get started, call Premier Family Dental in Waco to schedule a tooth replacement consultation appointment.
What are My Multiple Tooth Replacement Options?
There are several different options available to repair your smile following multiple tooth loss. In order to determine which of these options is right for you, we’ll need to carefully examine your smile and capture diagnostic images to give us a clear understanding of your current situation. Then, we’ll show you your current smile and fully explain each available treatment as well as the cost and time commitment associated with each of your options. No treatment is right for everyone, and at Premier Family Dental, we never rely on one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we’ll partner with you to design a tooth replacement solution that is ideal for your oral health care needs.
Dental Crown Supported Fixed Bridge
For two to four consecutive missing teeth, we may be able to provide a traditional dental crown supported fixed bridge. The prosthetic teeth are fused together. Then, dental crowns are attached to both sides of the fused together replacement teeth. The crowns are attached to healthy teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, supporting the fixed bridge.
Implant Supported Dental Bridge
To replace two or a few consecutive teeth, we can also use a dental implant supported fixed bridge. Similar to traditional bridges, these prosthetics are crafted by fusing together a row of replacement teeth. Rather than anchoring them to surrounding teeth, the replacement teeth are anchored to two dental implants, one at each end.
For more advanced tooth loss that includes both consecutive and nonconsecutive teeth, we may recommend a partial denture. These prosthetics use a gum-colored base to support a number of replacement teeth. The base material is crafted to fit snuggly into the smile, filling gaps like a puzzle piece. The entire prosthetic is anchored to surrounding teeth with clasps.
Implant Supported Partial Dentures
For increased stability and longevity, we also offer dental implant supported partial dentures. They work the same way as their removable counterparts, but these fixed partials are anchored to several strategically positioned dental implants.
How do I Determine which Tooth Replacement Solution is Right for Me?
During your consultation, we’ll take the time to review each option with you. We never move forward with a dental treatment plan until you feel completely confident in the services we’ve selected. Don’t hesitate to ask as many questions as you need to. We’re here to help.
What Does Multiple Tooth Replacement Cost?
The cost of your tooth replacement plan will depend on the number and location of missing teeth, the type of restoration you choose, and whether or not you decide to use dental implants to support the restoration. During your tooth replacement consultation, we’ll walk you through each of your restoration options as well as the cost and timeline associated with each. We will also be happy to process dental insurance claims to help you minimize out of pocket treatment costs, and when necessary, we can work with CareCredit, a third party financier, to provide low and no interest payment plans. In short, our knowledgeable team is here to help you fit the cost of replacing missing teeth into your budget.
