Multiple Tooth Replacement - Tulsa, OK
Rebuild a Complete Smile with Dental Implants
Losing a single tooth can significantly impact your self-esteem but losing multiple teeth can be devastating to your confidence and your quality of life. You don’t need to live with an incomplete smile. Now, you have more options than ever for multiple tooth replacement in Tulsa. We can restore your smile back to its previous glory using a customized treatment plan.
What are the Tooth Replacement Options?
When it comes to your dental care, you deserve to have options, which is why our office offers a variety of dental prosthetics depending on how many teeth you’re missing. Besides traditional methods, we also embrace implant-supported tooth replacement. Your dentist carefully evaluates your oral health and discusses your desired results to rebuild your smile.
Crown & Bridge
A fixed bridge is the most traditional treatment to replace 1 to 3 consecutive missing teeth. We take an impression of your mouth to replicate those you’ve lost. They are customized to match the appearance of your natural ones to blend in when you smile. The bridge is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. You can enjoy an affordable option that can last for about a decade before needing to be replaced.
As an alternative to a traditional bridge, you can replace the entire tooth structure with dental implants. Titanium posts are surgically inserted into your jawbone to support the bridge at either end. They mimic both the crowns and roots of your teeth to stop common problems associated with tooth loss, such as dental drift, tooth decay, and gum disease. You won’t need to permanently alter healthy teeth while choosing a solution that can last for a lifetime with the right aftercare.
Partial Dentures/Implant-Supported Partial Dentures
A partial denture features custom-made prosthetic teeth held in a gum colored base. The base has a metal framework that allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place. Although new innovations allow them to look and feel more natural than ever, a partial denture will always have its limitations. As an alternative, you can choose implant-supported partial dentures. They don’t rely on your teeth for support, so you can regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force.
How Do I Determine Which Implant Solution is Right for Me?
We perform a thorough consultation to evaluate your severity of tooth loss and your oral health. We also consider your medical and lifestyle history to determine which treatment best meets your needs to achieve the results you want. You may need additional procedures to create the right foundation for your dental implants, like bone grafting or periodontal therapy. We’ll explain the treatment process and answer your questions to make the right choice for your smile.
Does Replacing Multiple Teeth Impact the Cost?
The more teeth you need to replace, the more you can expect to pay for your treatment, but dental implants are cost-effective. Since they have the potential to last for a lifetime, you’ll never need to worry about having them replaced in the future. This makes them more affordable long-term to invest in your oral health and your quality of life.
