How You Can Replace Your Lost Teeth

How You Can Replace Your Lost Teeth
  • March 1, 2017

Accidents happen, so you could find yourself missing one or more teeth. This is nothing to ignore, as leaving an empty space in your smile is a bad idea.

Call our Nashua, NH dental office today at 603-546-7460 and schedule an appointment for restorative dentistry. Dr. Kiehl has studied extensively and has years of practical experience. When it comes to replacing lost teeth, you can get exactly what you need.

How You Could Lose Some Teeth

Your teeth are designed to last your whole life. However, plans rarely work completely. Here are some of the reasons you might be missing teeth by now:

  • A cavity grew too big, and your tooth cannot be saved.
  • Gum disease caused your tooth to fall out.
  • You didn’t have the right number of adult teeth.
  • You had an injury playing sports that knocked a tooth out.

By calling Nashua Family Dentistry today, you can make an appointment to replace your lost teeth with dental restorations. Dr. Kiehl can replace a single tooth or many. Either way, you’ll finally have a complete smile again.

You Really Need To Replace Lost Teeth

There are times when it’s probably best to ignore a problem. But that’s usually when there are no solutions available. Ignoring that empty gap in your smile is bad, and here’s why:

  • You’ll have more trouble chewing and eating.
  • If you lost a front tooth, you could have trouble pronouncing words clearly.
  • Your other teeth will get crooked without the missing tooth’s support.
  • You will look older than you are.
  • Your confidence decreases because you’re worried about what others might think.

That’s why you need to call us today at 603-546-7460 and schedule a tooth replacement. All those problems are preventable with a dental restoration, but you need to make that call first.

Your Tooth Replacement Options

Here are the ways Dr. Kiehl can replace your missing teeth and help prevent those problems.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are as close to regrowing a lost tooth as dental technology allows. You’ll get an artificial tooth root implanted in your jawbone. Atop that, you’ll have a natural-looking and durable replacement tooth. Dental implants are long-lasting as well. You can expect to enjoy yours for 20 years or longer.

MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS

Because dental implants use an implanted root, your jawbone needs to be thick enough to take the implant. For people whose jawbones are too thin, you can get mini dental implants. These still feature a beautiful but strong replacement tooth atop an implant. It’s just that the implant itself is much smaller so it will fit where a regular implant will not.

FIXED BRIDGES

If you cannot get a dental implant, or you want a more affordable tooth replacement, then you want a fixed bridge. This dental restoration uses two dental crowns to hold your replacement tooth firmly in that gap. But there’s no surgery, so the cost is less.

ALL-ON-4® DENTAL IMPLANTS

If you need to replace all the teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth, All-on-4 dental implants do just that. A full arch of replacement teeth is connected to four dental implants placed in your jawbone. They are placed at a patented angle that provides more support and stability.

DENTURES

Dentures are still around for two reasons. First, they’re usually more affordable than other dental restorations for a full arch of teeth. Second, they work very well. Traditional dentures (both full and partial dentures) are removable. Dr. Kiehl is trained to use dental implants to hold your dentures securely.

SAME-DAY SMILE

This revolutionary technique replaces teeth with special dental implants. Normally, you have to wait a while for the implant site to heal. With Same-Day Smile, you can get your replacement teeth put atop your implants all in one day.

Call Nashua Family Dentistry today at 603-546-7460 or use our convenient online form to schedule your appointment for a tooth replacement. With all the different ways you can get that tooth replaced, there’s simply no reason to suffer from that gap in your smile.
