If you have one or more missing teeth and want a fuller smile, Dr. Dhara Patel offers restorative treatment at Best Dental Spa. Dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures and partials can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth.
Missing Teeth Problems
Missing teeth should be replaced because tooth structure is needed to support your overall oral health. In addition, if the gaps left by missing teeth are not filled, multiple problems can arise, including:
- Bone loss
- Tooth decay
- Speech issues
- Crooked teeth
- Shifting teeth
- Difficulty chewing
- Facial sagging
If you have missing teeth and would like to restore your smile confidence with a new smile, contact Best Dental Spa at 847.660.6603. Our team will work with you every step of the way to ensure that treatment runs smoothly.
Restorative Treatment Options
Before treatment, Dr. Patel will review your budget, goals, and oral health to help you choose a treatment that works for you. Dr. Patel uses Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) for restorations involving dental implants. CBCT is integral to treatment planning and the placement of implants.
Single missing teeth or whole arches of teeth can be replaced utilizing dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post which is inserted into the jawbone. After a period of 3 to 6 months, a permanent abutment and dental crown are added for a permanent restoration.
One or more teeth can be replaced with dental bridges. This option can be removable or secured in place with dental implants. Dental bridges can also utilize surrounding natural teeth to secure and replace consecutive missing teeth. Further tooth loss can be prevented with this solution.
Dentures & Partials
Multiple teeth or the upper and lower arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures or partial dentures. Like dental bridges, dentures can be removable or secured by dental implants. Dr. Patel also offers all-on-four dental implants which are used to secure dentures using four implants. Many patients also find that it is easier to bite and chew food with these dental restorations.
