Restorative Dentistry in Cambridge, ON

Suffering from a missing tooth? You might initially think that there’s no problem with having a gap in your mouth. Those with missing hind teeth don’t worry about them too much since they’re not noticeable and don’t affect their smiles. At Dental Art Clinic in Cambridge, We recommend against this strategy as missing teeth will eventually cause problems.

When your teeth have more space, thanks to a missing tooth, they can start shifting and growing further apart. You’ll end up noticing increasing gaps between your teeth. You might have problems chewing or even pronouncing some letters with missing teeth too. There are several restorative options out there, and it’s up to you to choose the ones you like the most. At Dental Art Clinic in Cambridge, we’ll always provide our input, but the final decision is yours.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges were the most popular restorative procedures for a long time. They fill gaps by false teeth that are attached to the adjacent healthy teeth. For a bridge to work, the adjacent teeth have to be healthy enough for attachment. Additionally, the adjacent or flanking teeth will have to be modified a little bit so the crowns can be attached to them.

Those with teeth that aren’t strong or healthy enough for support won’t be able to get bridges. Of course, if the flanking teeth start decaying over time, the bridge will most likely fail and fall off. They’re still popular, though, and many people have excellent results with them.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is the closest thing we have to natural teeth right now. Dental bridges used to be the most popular procedures until implants came along. With an implant, we’ll place a titanium screw into your jawbone and let it fixate for a few weeks. Once the attachment is secure, we’ll place the false tooth onto the screw.

It’s almost impossible to tell the difference between an implant and a person’s natural teeth. They’re long-lasting, too, as they can last an entire lifetime if taken care of by brushing and flossing. You’ll be able to eat whatever you want without restrictions.
