What Are My Options to Replace Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth can cause many other dental problems, including shifting of neighboring teeth as well as a loss of bone mass in the jaw. For this reason, it’s important to fill the gap caused by a missing tooth as soon as possible. Hunter’s Creek Dental provides two solutions for your missing tooth problem. Depending on the severity of the case and the number of teeth you have lost, our team will help you choose the correct option to meet your needs. Our teeth replacement options include:

  • Dental Implants: This option completely replaces a missing tooth by using a metal post to act as the new tooth root. Once placed, the metal post can heal and fuse with the bone before the false tooth is placed over the top. Dental implants provide a very durable and natural-looking solution for missing teeth.
  • Dentures: If you have many missing teeth, dentures may be your only option. This solution can replace an entire arch of missing teeth, either the top arch, bottom arch, or both. Our dentists will ensure you’re outfitted with adequately fitting dentures to provide a stable solution.

How Often Do I Need a Dental Checkup?

It is recommended that patients in good oral health receive a dental cleaning and checkup twice a year. The dental cleaning will help to remove any buildup of plaque or tartar from the teeth. Even if you aren’t experiencing any dental issues or pain, these checkups are important as they allow the dentist to identify any potential problems early. This means problems can be addressed early before they become worse and require more costly treatments.

What Precautions Do You Take to Ensure Patient Safety?

The health and safety of our patients are of the utmost importance to the staff at Hunter’s Creek Dental. We follow the strict guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and OSHA to ensure our office environment is clean and safe for all patients. We also utilize essential sterilization techniques for all reusable dental instruments. This maintains a sterile environment for all patients and helps to protect their health during their appointment.

What is the Difference Between Veneers and Lumineers?

A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that is laid over the top of an existing tooth to improve its shape or color. They are used to cosmetically enhance a person’s smile. Lumineers are a brand of veneers that many patients choose because of their easy placement procedure. Lumineers require very little to no tooth preparation before placement. In contrast, traditional veneers require your dentist to reshape and trim down teeth before placement.
