Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Dr. Wainwright provides these solutions to patients in the Austin and West Lake Hills, TX area:
Dental Implants: Single missing teeth or whole arches of teeth can be replaced utilizing dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post which is inserted into the jawbone. After a period of 3 to 6 months, a permanent abutment and dental crown are added for a permanent restoration.
Dental Bridges: One or more teeth can be replaced with dental bridges. This option can be removable or secured in place with dental implants. Dental bridges can also utilize surrounding natural teeth to secure and replace consecutive missing teeth. Further tooth loss can be prevented with this solution.
Dentures and Partials: Multiple teeth or the upper and lower arches of teeth can be replaced with full or partial dentures. Like dental bridges, dentures can be removable or secured by dental implants. Many patients also find that it is easier to bite and chew food with these dental restorations.
