Why it's Important to Replace Missing Teeth

If you’ve had a tooth pulled due to infection, you may mistakenly believe that the extraction solved the problem. In reality, having a tooth pulled is just one step in the process to your restoring your oral health and function. Here’s why.

When a tooth is not replaced, it can cause the jawbone around the socket to resorb, which can alter your bite and facial appearance over time. Also, missing teeth can cause other teeth to go out of alignment or even cause the opposing teeth to supererupt, leading to additional complications such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and uneven wear on biting surfaces. 

Dental Bridges: Replace Teeth Economically

Dental Bridges in Brandon, FL – Mora Dental Studio

If dental implants are outside your budget, or you don’t have sufficient bone density to support dental implants, the next best option would be a dental bridge. Dental bridges essentially bridge the gap left by a missing tooth by replacing the tooth with a prosthetic tooth held in place by neighboring teeth. 

While there are several styles of dental bridges, the most common style is a fixed bridge, which uses two adjacent teeth to support a prosthetic tooth. With this kind of procedure, the adjacent teeth are filed down to accept dental crowns. An artificial tooth known as a pontic is then fused to the two crowns to complete your smile. Your dental bridge may have a metal bar for added strength and stability.

The other types of dental crowns are cantilever and Maryland bonded bridges. Cantilever bridges use just one healthy tooth to support a prosthesis. Maryland bonded bridges are typically held in place with metal wings which are cemented onto the neighboring teeth. One great thing about Maryland bridges is that they don’t require the neighboring teeth to be altered.  

Most dentists recommend replacing dental bridges every 15 years or when necessary. According to the latest data, 90% of dental bridges are still in place after 5 years. 

Dental Implants: The Best in Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are considered the "gold standard" of tooth replacement procedures. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or even a full arch of missing teeth.

Dental Crowns: Strengthen and Restore Weakened Teeth

Dental Crowns in Brandon, FL – Mora Dental Studio

Sometimes called "caps," dental crowns are prosthetic devices that cover the surface of the tooth to give it strength and protect it from infection. With dental crowns, you can alter the shape, size, and appearance of the tooth, which is why they are also used in cosmetic dentistry. 

Your dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have undergone root canal therapy, dental trauma, extensive tooth decay, or another condition which has compromised the integrity of your tooth. 

Material Options

Dental crowns are available in a number of materials, with porcelain being the most popular. Other restorative options include gold and zirconia. Each material has its own unique advantages. We would be happy to make recommendations based on your smile and oral health goals.
