Why Replace Missing Teeth
Replacing your missing teeth in a timely fashion helps minimize the chance of developing gum disease, infection, further tooth loss, and bone loss. One of the most common problems that arise from tooth loss is jawbone deterioration. Jawbone deterioration can cause the face to appear wrinkled and sagged. Replacing your missing teeth can help restore beauty and function back to your smile.
Dr. McLauchlin will perform a comprehensive exam to determine which solution would work best for your dental needs. Depending on your needs, Dr. McLauchlin may suggest dental implants, dentures, or a dental bridge as your tooth replacement solution.
Tooth Replacement in Nixa, MO
Dental Implants: Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants mimic your natural tooth root and are used to support a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. Most dentists recommend dental implants because they are extremely durable and resemble your natural teeth.
Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge bridges the gap between teeth. A dental bridge can be fixed into place using dental implants.
Dentures & Partials: A denture is an ideal solution for patients who are missing their full arch of the top, bottom, or both rows of missing teeth. IF you are looking for a more stable solution, dentures can be fixed into place using dental implants.
