Dr. Radosavljevic offers a variety of options for the replacement of missing teeth and emphasizes the importance of replacing missing teeth as soon as possible to avoid further dental health problems. Once a tooth is lost, the bone begins to deteriorate. It will continue to deteriorate if no treatment is sought, making replacement options more and more difficult and potentially affecting other teeth.
Missing Teeth Options
There are a variety of options available for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Radosavljevic will perform a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose your specific condition and make treatment recommendations for the best long term results. Our goal is to restore your smile to its natural function with optimal health and esthetics.
Dental implants – Dental implants are the most lifelike replacements for missing teeth. They are a permanent solution for tooth loss, with a success rate of over 95% among current patients. Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They enable patients to enjoy an excellent quality of life with no diet restrictions or daily maintenance.
Dental implant costs are a major concern for many patients. It should be noted, however, that dental implants offer the best long term solution and need the least amount of dental work in the future. While no type of dental restoration is 100% guaranteed, patients with dental implants often experience no maintenance requirements or additional costs.
Dentures and Partial Dentures – Dentures and partial dentures can be a very effective solution for missing teeth. Used for centuries to replace missing teeth, today’s dentures look and feel more like natural teeth than ever before. Dr. Radosavljevic offers a variety of dentures including implant supported dentures which offer better retention and long term benefits compared to traditional removable dentures.
Dental Bridges – Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. There are many types of dental bridges available including implant secured dental bridges which are permanent and extremely long lasting.
