The Importance Of Replacing Missing Teeth

Restorative Dentistry 1 in Bordentown, NJ | Dr. Hema Gopal, Premier Dental

Dr. Hema Gopal wants your oral health to be at its best, which just isn’t possible even if you’re missing only a single tooth.

Missing teeth can cause a ton of trouble. Your comfort, diet, and overall health can be greatly affected if you have an open space in your smile.

Premier Dental offers multiple restorative dentistry options at our Bordentown, NJ office. Please check out the info below, then call us today at 609-949-5115 to find out how we can replace missing teeth and prevent others from becoming damaged.

How Missing Teeth Can Affect Your Overall Health

Disappointment in your appearance can lead to daily stress, which is never good. You shouldn’t have to hide your smile or deal with looking older than you are – a common result from letting teeth remain missing for too long.

You may also be avoiding beneficial foods because you can’t comfortably chew. If you are trying to eat harder foods that are good for you, such as apples and nuts, you may not be chewing them properly. This can lead to digestive issues.

Ignoring missing teeth can also cause a shifting of your existing teeth and weakening of your jawbone.

Dr. Gopal and the rest of us at Premier Dental can and will help you avoid all of these issues.

How We Can Restore Your Smile

We’ll first conduct a quick examination of your mouth and take digital X-rays. These images will help us determine if you have any problems with your existing teeth. From there, we’ll determine if any of your natural teeth need to be removed so you can fully benefit from our restorative dentistry options.

Using the latest and most patient-friendly technology, we’ll determine which of the following solutions are best for replacing your missing teeth:

Dental Implants – Implants are replacement tooth roots that we gently place into your jaw. They eventually fuse to your jawbone to become strong enough to anchor replacement teeth. Dental implants are a terrific, long-lasting solution for strengthening and beautifying your smile.

Dentures – We offer a variety of dentures to replace some or all of your missing teeth. Using a digital scanner, we will create a painless and swift impression of your mouth. We will then provide any of the following treatments:  

  • Traditional dentures, which consist of a full set of customized and removable replacement upper and/or lower teeth
  • Partial dentures that replace only a few teeth and are supported by your existing teeth
  • Immediate dentures, which we provide on the same day as your tooth extraction process (adjustments may be necessary as your gums heal)
  • Implant-secured dentures that anchor to your existing dental implants

Dental Crowns & Bridges – If you’re missing one tooth and have a dental implant, we can place a single solid crown onto the implant. This replacement would be made of strong, tooth-colored zirconia or porcelain. If you need more than one tooth replaced, we’ll create a bridge that fills in your smile’s space and securely attaches to your existing teeth for support.

Emergency Dentistry

If you have lost a tooth due to an accident, please contact us immediately at 609-949-5115. We will make a same-day emergency dental appointment for you. Time is of the essence, and the sooner we can see you, the better off your smile will be.

Your Comfort Is A Top Priority

Once you’re in one of our cozy chairs, you can request extra-soft pillows to get settled before we even start. Then, you can turn on the TV (provided in each of our care rooms) and flip through 100+ channels. You can also choose to use our headphones and relax with some music.

During any potentially painful procedure, we use local anesthesia to numb your mouth so you don’t feel a thing. We will also provide nitrous oxide to calm your nerves if you so desire.
