Missing teeth should be treated as soon as possible to prevent bone deterioration, tooth decay, and any other complex problems that may develop. Dr. David Srikureja and Montclair Plaza dental care team work with each of our patients to find the best solution for their smile. After a thorough examination and consultation, Dr. Srikureja may recommend dental implants, dentures, or dental bridge as your replacement solution.
Replacing Missing Teeth
During your visit to our Montclair Plaza dental office, one of our skilled dentists will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the overall health of your teeth. Treatment planning is a vital part of creating your ideal smile. We take our time to address your dental needs and cover all bases before suggesting the appropriate solution for your smile. We may offer:
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are a small, titanium post that mimics your natural tooth root. Over time, the dental implant will integrate into the jaw bone. Once the dental implant is fused with the jawbone, your Montclair Plaza dentist will attach a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture as your final restoration. In order to receive dental implants, a patient must have a healthy amount of healthy jawbone structure. During your consultation, Dr. Srikureja will determine if dental implants are the best solution for you.
- Dental Bridge: Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Typically, a dental bridge is supported by adjacent teeth and a dental crown that is used to hold the false tooth in place. For a more secure solution, a dental bridge can be secured using dental implants. Our dental care team can work with you to determine which solution best suits your dental needs.
- Dentures: Dentures and Partials are removable appliances that are used to replace the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. For a more secure solution, dentures can be secured using strategically placed dental implants.
When choosing a tooth replacement solution, it is important to provide patients with a comfortable, natural-looking tooth replacement option.
