Extractions and Tooth Replacement
 

Teeth that are extracted because of reasons other than orthodontics; wisdom teeth or supernumerary (extra) teeth should be replaced. These different replacement options are as follows.

Implants:
An implant is a titanium structure which acts as a root placed inside the jaw bone .The Implant acts as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. Our office works with an oral surgeon for the placement of an implant. The restoration or the crown work of the implant may be done within our office.

Bridges:
A bridge not only fills the gap created by a lost tooth but also restores smile. It also maintains jaw integrity by preventing shifting of other teeth that tend to move towards the lost tooth. A Bridge basically consists of at least three basic units that are adjoined together (two units capping the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth called the abutment teeth and one unit called the pontic going in place of the missing tooth). The bridge is a fixed appliance that does not have to be removed from the mouth.

Dentures:
Complete Dentures are for patients who have lost or are going to lose all remaining unhealthy teeth. Partial Dentures is for patients who have lost some or several teeth but still have remaining healthy teeth. With current technology, we also offer Flexi or flexible dentures which are not as rigid and may be more comfortable
