Reasons to replace missing teeth
What are dental implants and how to they work?
At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry, we believe that dental implants are the most advanced and convenient way to cosmetically preserve your beautiful smile and are a great alternative to false teeth. The implants are miniscule titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone wherever teeth are missing. The titanium binds to the bone, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. In addition, these cosmetic implants can help preserve facial structure and provide you or a family member with the confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life to the fullest, knowing that their teeth appear natural looking and healthy.
What is an implant overdenture?
An implant overdenture is a denture that is connected to a dental implant. At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry, we feel that an implant overdenture is a great treatment option for someone who requires a full denture but wants to achieve a more stable and less bulky restoration.
Removable Partial Denture
What are the pros and cons of getting removable partial dentures?
A removable partial denture is the most economical type of tooth replacement. These tooth replacements vary in complexity and durability. When they are made well, they can be very comfortable; however, an adjustment period is inevitable because of the noticeable foreign object in your mouth. At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry, we believe that although this is a great temporary cosmetic solution, it is notrecommended as a permanent treatment.
How Does a Fixed Bridge work?
A fixed bridge is a cosmetic solution that fuses three or more crowns together and is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems. At Dr. Zak Family Dentistry, we believe that a fixed bridge can permanently replace missing teeth and fix severely damaged teeth.
