Despite improvements in dental care, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss. This is mostly due to tooth decay, gum disease, or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. Nonetheless, it was critical to receive replacement teeth to ensure their teeth and mouth maintain their proper function, form, health, and beauty. However, at Pleasant Valley Family Dentistry, we have many state-of-the-art treatment options available to those who require tooth replacement, including Mount Laurel implants.
Bridges and dentures may be the first thing you think of when considering replacing missing teeth. There are fixed bridges, which remain in your mouth at all times and are supported by your natural teeth, and removable bridges (partial and complete dentures), which are removed from the mouth several times a day for cleaning and rest on the gum where the missing teeth are being replaced. Complete dentures replace all the teeth while partial dentures fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, preventing other teeth from changing positions. Similarly, dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. It's composed of two main parts: One part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant. In addition to tooth replacement, Mount Laurel implants may be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural-looking smile.
In the 21st century, dentistry has evolved into a science that maintains function, form, health, and a beautiful smile for a lifetime. If your smile needs improving, Mount Laurel implants or dentures are an excellent option. Let your search to improve your smile with the latest cosmetic restorative methods and materials end at Pleasant Valley Family Dentistry. Let your tooth restorations be something worth smiling about.
