Teeth Replacement Options

Lexington, KY Reliable Teeth Replacement Options

If you are missing teeth, we can help. We offer a variety of tooth replacement options that are strong, reliable, and perfect for letting you get back to your normal life. With our teeth replacement options, you will no longer have to avoid that one spot in your mouth! Let us help you get back to the life you want to live. We can help you determine which option is right for you. Our options include:

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth can improve not only your appearance, but also your dental health. Missing teeth can cause dental problems if they are not replaced. Even if you have only one missing tooth that others can’t even see, filling that gap can prevent future chewing problems. Moreover, if just one tooth is missing, other teeth can drift out of place, which leads to bite and/or jaw problems.

After a very thorough exam, X-rays, and consultation, we will choose your best restorative option. There are various alternatives for one to two missing teeth – or even several missing teeth. We install dental bridges based on how many teeth are being replaced. We offer both fixed bridges and implant-supported bridges.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are another great option for replacing missing teeth. Partial dentures replace only a series of missing teeth, while full traditional dentures replace an entire arch of teeth. Traditional dentures are beautifully crafted replacement teeth that are set into a plastic mold. This mold fits into your mouth, directly onto your gums. A denture adhesive is often needed to hold the dentures in place. These replacement teeth must be removed for regular cleaning.

Implant-Secured Dentures

We offer two types of implant-secured dentures: implant-supported and implant-retained. Implant-retained dentures are designed much like removable dentures, except that they are anchored to your jawbone using dental implants and ball attachments. Implant-supported dentures work similarly, except that they use a bar attachment that clips into the implants. Both types of implant-secured dentures are more stable than traditional removable dentures and are better for your oral health because they preserve bone structure.

Traditional Dental Implants

We also offer traditional individual dental implants. If you are missing just one tooth, we can replace it with a single implant and replacement crown. If you are going to need to have a tooth removed, we can even sometimes place implants right after an extraction! In addition, dental implants are designed to restore almost 100 percent of your natural chewing ability! To learn more about dental implants, visit our service page here.
