We know how missing teeth can impact your life and your oral health. When teeth are missing, it can make social interactions challenging. You find yourself hiding your smile, and you’re unsure about laughing. It can also impact your ability to chew food and speak clearly.
Aside from the emotional toll, missing teeth can also impact your healthy teeth by promoting slippage toward smile gaps and bone loss in your jaw.
For all these reasons, your dentist in Edina, MN offers tooth replacement choices, including options to fit most budgets and lifestyles.
Close the Gap with a Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is a practical solution to tooth loss. It is a fixed prosthetic that can only be removed by your dentist. This makes it a stable option that does not require adhesives or relines.
The prosthetic is a tooth or teeth placed between dental crowns. The crowns cap the tooth to the left and right of your smile gap, allowing the prosthetic tooth or teeth to restore your smile. We can also use one to four dental implants to secure your bridge.
Your dental bridge requires little maintenance—other than a floss threader and small cleaning brush. A member of our dental team will tell you how to use these tools.
Dental Implants in Edina, MN
Dental implants are considered the gold standard because they replace the entire anatomy of your tooth, are most like natural teeth, and they require no added maintenance. Dental implants are an investment in your long-term oral health.
A dental implant is a titanium replacement root that fuses with your jawbone across several months. When bonding is complete, we top your implant with a quality dental crown.
With proper upkeep, your dental implant can remain viable for decades or even a lifetime.
