Why Choose Southern Oaks Dental
for Replacing Missing Teeth?
If you’re missing one or more consecutive teeth, you may be a great candidate for a dental bridge. This prosthetic is customized to fit your dental structure and consists of two dental crowns fused to either side of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. The crowns are cemented to your prepared natural teeth to anchor the restoration in place and complete your arch of teeth. Once secured, you’ll have completely restored function of your smile.
If you’re missing several or all of your teeth along an arch, we also offer full and partial dentures in Tyler to restore your smile. These consist of a gum-colored acrylic foundation that holds custom-crafted replacement teeth in place. Depending on whether you get partial or full dentures, they will either utilize a strategically designed base that fits around your teeth or natural suction to stay in place. With the proper care and maintenance, these restorations can last for several years.
Are you looking for a more permanent and stable alternative to traditional dentures and bridges? Dr. Markle also offers dental implants to replace the entire structure of missing teeth from the roots upward. By replacing the roots of your missing teeth, implants are able to provide a variety of unique benefits that set them apart from traditional treatments, including preservation of the facial structure and prevention of bone deterioration.
