Are you missing one or more of your teeth? Do you want to fill in the gaps in your smile?
Patients with missing teeth are more likely to develop dental problems including gum disease, which can affect your oral AND physical health. Gum disease can also cause tooth loss. However, Dr. Gregory Hillyard and Dr. Alexandra Monroe provide patients with the option to receive a fuller smile with restorative treatments for missing teeth. They collaborate with patients to help them find the solution that works best for their smiles and personal preferences.
Treatments for Missing Teeth
There are several options for tooth replacement. Our Media, PA dentists will thoroughly examine your oral health as well as discuss your concerns and goals before recommending a plan of treatment.
One of the most versatile and effective treatments for replacing one or more missing teeth is dental implants. Dr. Monroe is trained to provide implant services under one roof. Because dental implants replace the tooth at its root using a titanium post, they provide a stable foundation. Dr. Monroe offers single tooth implants as well as implant-supported bridgework and dentures.
Dental bridges are a great option for replacing one or more adjacent teeth. The dental bridge is secured to teeth adjacent to the tooth gap using either natural teeth topped with dental crowns or dental implants. This solution helps patients chew, speak, and eat normally as they had before their tooth loss.
Dentures and Partials
Full fixed dentures adhere to the gums with dental implants. They offer long-term benefits and require maintenance similar to natural teeth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. They are utilized to prevent remaining teeth from changing positions.
