Replacing Missing Teeth – Austin, TX
Filling the Gaps in Your Grin
Losing a tooth is not something that you should force yourself to live with. Even ignoring the affect it has on your smile and your ability to enjoy your favorite foods, a lost tooth can lead to a shrinking jawbone and the shifting of your remaining teeth. You’ll also be more likely to lose more teeth in the future. Don’t lose any time; get in touch with Dr. Wong and Dr. Caballero to discuss your options for replacing missing teeth in Austin, TX.

For a gap left by one to four teeth in a row, you can get a dental bridge. At either end of the restoration is a crown that will be anchored to one of the natural teeth next to the gap. The crowns will hold a series of artificial teeth between them in order to fill the empty space, allowing you to speak and eat normally again without having to worry about your dental prosthetic coming loose.
There are actually two kinds of dentures you can get to replace several teeth at once. Full dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. In contrast, partial dentures are better for filling in multiple gaps or large spaces when there are still healthy teeth worth saving. Dentures are an affordable option for many patients who suffer from tooth loss, and they can easily be customized to fit in your unique mouth.
With dental implants, the term “tooth replacement” means something quite different. We’re not just filling in the gaps with teeth that stay above the surface of the gums; we’re also replacing the roots as well so that your new restoration will stay in place no matter what, and will continue to stimulate the jaw as you bite and chew. Unlike other dental offices that might have to point you to a specialist, we can perform the implant procedure from start to finish.
