At Beamon Dental, we make you proud of your teeth – even missing ones! If you lose one or more teeth as an adult, it can have a detrimental effect on your appearance and dental health. Your teeth need to function together well to help you eat, speak and smile.
In addition to tooth extractions, Beamon Dental in Gulfport, Miss., provides dental replacements for tooth loss — including dental implants, bridges or removable partial dentures (as well as full dentures).
Tooth loss should not be neglected. Even the loss of a back molar may cause your other teeth and your mouth appearance to shift, cause more dental problems and even make your face to look older. Fortunately, missing teeth can be replaced.
Your dentist is likely to suggest one or more of three solutions, depending upon your needs and budget. Replacement teeth should last for many years, so it is important to choose a treatment that is right for you.
Those options are:
* Fixed Bridges
* Removable Partial Dentures
Talk to your dentist. He or she can answer your questions and help you decide which option will work best for you.
