Missing teeth, whether from an injury, gum disease, decay, or fracture can affect your ability to smile without restraint or to chew effectively. Whatever the case, your concerns and needs will be listened to and cared for at Saratoga Smile Care.
The loss of teeth can cause a list of problems ranging from; difficulty chewing; shifting of teeth causing bite imbalance; progression of bone loss; gum disease; increase biting stress on remaining teeth, and emotional and social concerns. At Saratoga Smile Care, Dr. Moreau will offer you a full range of treatment options from dental bridges, dental implants, orthodontics, partial denture or full denture to replace your missing teeth. He will first perform a comprehensive evaluation to better understand your situation and make the necessary recommendations that will serve you best long term. Some missing teeth options might include:
- dental implants have a 95% success rate and are the most lifelike replacements of missing teeth
- dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
- partial or full dentures are an effective solution for the replacement of a number of missing teeth.
- orthodontics can be used sometimes to close the space for a tooth loss by moving adjacent teeth and closing the space
Our office also performs tooth extractions and can replace them with dental implants with or with out bone grafts.
