Missing teeth are often both an emotional and dental health issue for most patients, detrimentally affecting daily quality of life and their sense of confidence in their appearance.
If you have missing teeth, contact us for a consultation at MAC Dental in Nixa with cosmetic dentist Dr. Jacob McClauchlin. There are a number of options including dental implants, bridgework and dentures. It’s important to replace missing teeth quickly to avoid bone loss, changes in your bite and prevent neighboring teeth from shifting into the space created by a missing tooth.
Restoring your functional smile will enable you to speak and eat clearly and comfortably.
Treatment for Missing Teeth
Dental implants are perhaps the most desirable solution for missing teeth. The dental implant fuses with the living bone, replacing the tooth at its root and providing the most stable foundation for a replacement tooth. We offer several dental implant options including single tooth implants, implant supported bridgework and “all-on-four”, an implant denture solution.
A dental bridge is an option for replacing one or more teeth. The bridge is secured to teeth adjacent to the gap using either dental crowns or dental implants.
Dentures & Partials
If you have several missing teeth, a denture may be the best solution. We offer implant supported dentures which provide a very stable and natural fit. If you are currently a denture wearer, we may be able to retro fit your existing denture into an implant supported system.
