Tooth Replacement in Fallston, MD
In order to find the ideal tooth replacement for your teeth, Dr. Elliott will perform a compressive exam. During this comprehensive exam, Dr. Elliott will examine your mouth, teeth, gums, and jawbone structure to determine with replacement option is right for you. At Lazer & Associates Family Dentistry, we offer:
- Dental Implants: Dental implants can replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are one of the most long-lasting, stable tooth replacement solutions. Dr. Elliott usually suggests dental implants because they provide natural looking, durable results for patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants are tiny, titanium post that is surgically attached to the jawbone. Once the dental implants have fused with the jawbone, Dr. Elliott will attach a dental crown, bridge, or denture as your final restoration. In order to receive dental implants, patients will need to have an adequate amount of healthy bone structure.
- Dental Bridge: Dental bridges can be used to bridge the gap between teeth. Dental bridges may require the use of neighboring teeth as a source of support. A dental bridge is made up of dental crowns on either side of the missing tooth and a pontic in between. Dental bridges can be secured using dental implants. With proper care and maintenance, a dental bridge can last years.
- Dentures: Dentures can be a fixed or removable appliance that is used to replace the bottom and/or top arch of the teeth. Full dentures replace the full bottom and top arch of teeth and partial dentures replace either the top or bottom row of teeth. If you are an ideal candidate for dental implants, Dr. Elliott will be able to secure your dentures with dental implants.
