At Miller Family Dental in Houston, Texas, our dentist Dr. Brian Miller is pleased to offer restorative dentistry for our patients who have missing teeth–whether it is one or several. We offer our patients dental bridges, crowns, dentures–both complete and partials–to bring back a natural looking smile.
Teeth can be lost due to tooth decay and gum disease, injury or trauma, smoking, and age. Let’s take a look at some of the options available to replace missing teeth:
–Dental Implants: These are the most natural-looking replacements for lost teeth. They are stable, last longer than other options, and keep the jawbone under the missing tooth stable so that it doesn’t deteriorate, maintaining facial structure.
–Dental Bridge: Tooth-supported bridges are designed to repair the damage to healthy teeth because they are ground to allow adding a bridge across the teeth that will then hold the crown.
–Partial Dentures: A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.
–Complete Denture: A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentists may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
Dr. Brian Miller and our team at Miller Family Dental in Houston, Texas, are excited to help our patients with missing teeth by placing natural looking replacements. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, we invite you to give us a call at 281.225.4966 today!
