Are you afraid to smile because of missing teeth?
One or more missing teeth impacts not only your self-confidence but also your oral health and physical well being. If missing teeth are not replaced promptly, your oral health begins to deteriorate over time. The loss of bone and shifting of teeth can change the shape of the jaw, making it more difficult to chew and speak comfortably. Lost teeth can also increase the risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and bite problems. Westborough Dental Associates offers comprehensive care and treatment options for replacing missing teeth and restoring your oral health.
Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Dr. Tufa works with patients on an individual basis to replace lost teeth. There is a range of factors that can affect treatment options and outcomes and Dr. Tufa takes the time to thoroughly evaluate your oral health condition and understand your overall health and aesthetic goals before recommending the most suitable options. A personal treatment plan will be presented and we will explain all aspects of your care so that you know what to expect.
- Dental implants: for one or more missing teeth, dental implants can offer the most natural function and aesthetics.
- Dental bridges: a dental bridge has been the “go to” choice when replacing one or several consecutive lost teeth. It can be secured with dental implants for a permanent result.
- Dentures, implant dentures: Dr. Tufa can replace a full arch or all of your teeth with a cosmetic denture. We also offer implant secured dentures to restore the most natural function and aesthetics possible.
Restoring your smile after tooth loss will also restore your best quality of life. If you have been suffering from the effects of missing teeth and feel embarrassed about the appearance of your smile, schedule an appointment with Dr. Tufa to learn more about your personal treatment options. Our comprehensive approach is the foundation for a result that will be lasting and comfortable.
