How can I replace my lost or damaged tooth?
If a tooth has had a root canal, has lost a significant amount of its structure, or is cracked or broken, a filling will not be enough. Instead, a porcelain crown can be placed over the remaining tooth and be made to look exactly like the adjacent teeth.
The best option for a tooth that has been lost or needs to be extracted is a dental implant, which involves placing a rod of bio-friendly titanium where the root was and capping it with a crown. Implants can last 10-120 years vs. 5-10 years for bridges or partial dentures.
A bridge is a quick and inexpensive way to put an artificial tooth into the space where one has been lost, anchoring it to neighboring teeth or making it removable. This prevents the other teeth from naturally moving in to fill the gap, causing misalignment and leading to serious periodontal disease.
