Replace Missing Teeth – Bedford, TX
Don’t Let a Lost Tooth Spoil Your Smile
A damaged tooth can simply be repaired or protected, but what happens if it has been lost altogether? No matter where a gap in your smile is located, it usually has grave implications for your oral health; your teeth will likely drift out of alignment, and you’re more likely to suffer from tooth decay and gum disease that could eventually lead to further tooth loss. To restore your grin as quickly as possible, schedule an appointment to discuss options to replace missing teeth in Bedford, TX at Omega Dental of Bedford today.

A dental bridge is made up of two crowns and one or more pontics (false teeth). The crowns will rest on the teeth adjacent to the gap; the pontics are used to fill the empty space in between. Bridges help protect your other teeth by ensuring that the pressures of biting and chewing continue to be distributed properly (meaning the rest of your mouth doesn’t suffer from an excessive amount of pressure in any particular area).
For many people, dentures immediately come to mind whenever they hear the words “tooth loss.” Not all dentures are meant to replace an entire arch of teeth; partial dentures are custom designed so that they fill in gaps in very specific areas of your mouth. Of course, if you have already lost most or all of your teeth, full dentures are likely to be your best option. Both partial dentures and full dentures are designed to look as natural as possible, and you can remove them at night as well as during routine cleanings.
In the modern dental world, nothing matches dental implants when it comes to quality tooth replacements. These titanium posts can act as artificial “roots” for one or more prosthetic teeth, holding them firmly in place and enhancing their chewing strength so that you can enjoy all of your favorite foods again. While other dental offices might refer you to a separate oral surgeon for implant placement, we can have the procedure performed right here in our dental office.
