We all know that brushing our teeth often is a good oral hygiene practice because it removes plaque and tartar buildup, and keeps our gums healthy. Still, brushing is simply not enough to create the kind of gleaming, bright smile we all would like to have.
Whether you are missing teeth because of an injury or accident, gum disease, tooth decay, age or other reasons, visit our dentist in Plano, TX for comprehensive replacement options and expert care. Dr. Grapevine offers a wide range of services for the replacement of missing teeth with dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures.
Missing teeth can create more than dental health concerns. Missing teeth can cause emotional stress and may begin to deteriorate your quality of life. Dr. Jacob Grapevine of Plano, TX offers dental restorations to restore the function, health, and beauty to your natural smile. Here at Signature Dentistry, we believe a confident smile is a key to a healthy and happy life.
Why Should I Replace My Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can affect all aspects of your life. Left untreated, missing teeth can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and even bone loss. Without the root structure of your missing teeth, your jaw bone is not fully supported and will begin to break down.
Over time, the jaw bone will begin to recede, leaving your jawline weak, and may appear prematurely aged. Missing teeth can also affect your diet and may lead to obesity, diabetes, and other associated systemic disease.
What Are My Replacement Options?
Our Plano, TX dentist office offers a full variety of dental restorations for your optimal oral health. During your personalized oral consultation, you and Dr. Grapevine will formulate an individualized dental treatment plan to restore your oral health.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are the preferred method of tooth replacement. With today’s modern dental technology, dental implants are life like, long lasting, and patients experience a 95% success rate. The titanium post acts as the root of the tooth providing long-term support to your jaw bone, and a permanent missing tooth replacement.
Dentures: Dentures have long been the standard in tooth replacement. Modern dentures offer a better fit and look and feel more natural than ever. Dr. Grapevine also offers implant-supported dentures that can provide a permanent solution if you are missing all of your teeth.
Dental Bridge: Dental bridges are ideal if you are missing several teeth. There are a variety of different styles of dental bridges including implant secured bridges for a permanent dental restoration.
