What Are My Options For Replacing A Missing Tooth? by Richardson, TX dentist Dr. Nish Kapadia.
What Are My Options For Replacing A Missing Tooth?
When you are missing a tooth, the most natural, or the closest thing to natural to a natural tooth, would be a dental implant. There are many options to replace missing teeth. One would be a partial denture, which is removable, which can be kind of loose and is definitely harder to eat with.
A second option that’s normally offered is a bridge, which is also a pretty good option. It’s cemented in there permanently. It does make it a little bit easier to eat but can be hard to keep clean. The third option is an implant. The implant is easier to clean than a bridge would be. It’s also in there permanently. It doesn’t move around, so it definitely makes it a lot easier to eat.
Our Response To Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Although the Governor has rescinded the mask mandate, as a Dental Office we are subject to protocols of the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE). The TSBDE has not lifted its COVID 19 emergency protocols, so masks are still to be worn by patients and staff in the dental practice. We will be continuing all of our COVID safety protocols and respectfully request all patients, staff and vendors wear a mask in our office. Thank you for helping us keep the safest environment possible for our patients and staff.
