Dental bridges can be removable or secured with dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth. Secured dental bridges provide more stability and last longer than removable dental bridges.
If you have discolored or worn teeth, you can benefit from dental crowns. Also known as dental caps, dental crowns cover teeth and dental restorations. Dental crowns may be color-matched to teeth, depending on whether you chose a restoration with metal, porcelain, ceramic, or another type of material.
If you are missing teeth and want to find a permanent replacement that does not need special care or products, consider dental implants. Dr. Wainwright places dental implants in Austin to permanently replace your lost and missing teeth. The success rate of this restorative dental procedure is about 95%. Whether you need one or multiple dental implants, we will work with you each step of the way.
Dentures and Partials
Complete or full dentures are used to replace most or all of a patient’s teeth. An advantage of this option is that patients have teeth during the healing period. Conventional dentures can then be made once the tissues have healed after six to eight weeks.
A removable denture is an option that fits over several remaining natural teeth or dental implants. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are a great option for patients who have several missing teeth but have some natural teeth remaining.
Periodontitis, or gum disease, affects millions of Americans each year. Swollen gums, also known as gingivitis, precede gum disease, so it is important to catch it in the early stages. There are multiple signs of periodontitis to look out for, including swollen gums, bleeding gums, receding gums, loose teeth, bad breath, toothaches, or mouth sores.
Do you suffer from frequent jaw or facial pain? You may have a temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ disorders may cause symptoms such as difficulty chewing, lockjaw, earaches, muscle spasms, teeth grinding, or teeth clenching. Lifestyle changes, Invisalign, and oral appliances can be used to help alleviate TMJ pain.
