What is the best way to replace a missing tooth?
At McKnight Signature Dental, we recommend treatment based on your goals for your smile, so what will work best depends largely upon you. Dr. Abbie McKnight and Dr. Megan Konz see themselves as educators and guides. They will always go over all of your treatment options and their benefits, helping you make a choice that makes the most sense for your smile.
Here are some of our teeth replacement options.
Dental implants have fast become one of the most popular tooth replacement options available today. Not only do they look completely natural, but they also fuse with the jawbone. They will not move or shift and assist in preventing bone loss due to a missing tooth.
For patients who want a non-surgical way to replace a missing tooth (or teeth), a dental bridge is a time-tested solution. While dental bridges do not have the same bone retention capabilities as dental implants, they do close the gap in the smile and keep teeth from shifting.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
If you have visions of your grandparents’ bulky dentures, erase that image from your mind. Today’s dentures look more natural and function better than ever. We can even place several implants to secure dentures in place, eliminating any slipping or falling when you laugh, eat, and speak.
If you have missing teeth and you are in the Leawood, Kansas City, MO, Overland Park, or Prairie Village area, contact our dental office to learn more about how to regain your smile.
