Ridgetop Dental offers advanced solutions for replacing missing teeth. Missing teeth are a complex dental concern that should be addressed as soon as possible.
Replacing missing teeth soon after a loss can prevent additional dental concerns from developing. Commonly related issues such as gum disease or bone loss can make it more difficult to replace the missing teeth and may require patients to undergo additional procedures. Replacing missing teeth restores the function, health, and appearance of the smile.
Why Should I Replace My Missing Teeth?
Teeth aid in chewing and speaking and work together to stabilize a healthy well-structured jaw. Tooth roots help promote natural bone growth keeping the jawline stable and preventing the shifting of teeth. When a tooth is lost or is removed, the root dies and weakens the stability of tooth alignment and the jaw bone.
Replacing missing teeth is important in order to maintain the natural function and structure of the bite and jaw. Ridgetop Dental offers several missing tooth replacement options and recommends implant-supported restorations for their natural design.
Tooth Replacement Options
When it comes to replacing missing teeth Dr. Datta and the team at Ridgetop Dental can offer a full range of modern treatment options.

- Implant dentures: permanently secured by several dental implants, an implant supported denture provides the most natural function.
