Missing Teeth - Manhattan, NYC
Are you missing a tooth or teeth? If so don't hide your smile, call William Esh D.D.S. and schedule an appointment to have your missing teeth replaced.
There are various ways to replace missing teeth, and West End Dental of Manhattan, NYC would love the opportunity to do just that for you. There are three essential ways to repair an absent tooth:
- A fixed bridge
- A detachable appliance
- A dental implant
A fixed bridge is similar to having three crowns, where the teeth on both sides of the tooth that are missing are made ready for the crown by adding impressions, and sending the impressions to a dental lab. The lab then constructs the crown and attaches the tooth being replaced between the crowns creating a bridge. A bridge is set, firm, and feels like your tooth was never missing. But a drawback is that you have covered the two teeth that had absolutely nothing wrong with them. The next tooth replacement option is a datable appliance. An example of a replacement option is a dental flipper. The dental flipper is a piece of plastic that has a false tooth attached to it. There are also partial dentures that can be removed. The way to keep the partials into place is to have clasps inserted. And lastly a dental implant is a third option. A dental implant is a false root that is inserted into the jaw after a tooth has been pulled, and a false tooth is placed in the spot where the tooth was removed by way of the false root. A dental implant, unlike the bridge does not depend on the surrounding teeth to keep it in place.
Just because you are missing a tooth, or teeth, there is no reason to stop smiling and to lose self confidence. Call West End Dental of Manhattan, NYC and schedule an appointment today to have your tooth or teeth replaced, and walk out with a big smile.
