Oregon City Tooth Replacement

By replacing missing teeth, patients can regain their ability to eat a wide variety of foods and speak clearly, improving their overall quality of life.

Does My Tooth Need to be Replaced ?

Having one or more missing teeth clearly indicates the need for a tooth replacement. Beyond aesthetics, missing teeth can lead to a number of challenges – inability to chew and speak properly, shifting in the alignment of your teeth and bite, jawbone deterioration, and a sunken or aged appearance from bone loss and decreased support previously provided by teeth.

Less obvious but equally significant indications are persistent pain, sensitivity or infection caused by a severely damaged tooth that cannot be restored through other dental treatments. A tooth replacement should also be considered if a damaged tooth makes you feel self-conscious about your smile, even when it’s not causing obvious discomfort.

If you experience any of these symptoms, our team will do a thorough evaluation and recommend the best replacement approach to alleviate pain and restore your oral health.

Alternatives to Tooth Replacement

Tooth damage does not always indicate the need for a replacement. We work to thoroughly understand our patients’ oral health and identify the most effective and economic solution for restoring functionality, which may include:

  1. Dental Bridges: A prosthetic device that replaces missing teeth by bridging the gap between adjacent teeth.

  2. Dentures: Removable dental appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth or a full arch of teeth.

  3. Dental Implants: A popular and long-lasting solution that involves the surgical placement of a titanium implant into the jawbone, which serves as a stable foundation for a prosthetic tooth.

  4. Dental Veneers: Thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance

Tooth Replacement Procedure

Tooth replacement procedures vary depending on patient needs and the recommended approach, though typically they include:

  1. Consultation and Examination: Evaluation of oral health, concerns, treatment goals, and objectives.

  2. Treatment Planning: A comprehensive treatment plan that includes considerations such as the number of missing teeth, the condition of the surrounding teeth and gums, and any additional procedures that may be required.

  3. Tooth Extraction (if needed): Removal of remaining teeth that are no longer viable.

  4. Dental Implant Placement: If this is the chosen approach, a prosthetic implant will be surgically implanted into the jawbone.

  5. Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up visits with your dentist are essential to monitor the success of the tooth replacement.

Your Pioneer Dental dentist is happy to walk you through your options and recommend a strategy that meets your aesthetic objectives as well as your financial budget.
