Why tooth replacement matters

Tooth Replacement from dentist in Garland Nature gives most adults 32 secondary teeth - that is where our practice gets its name! As human diet changed over time, the need for third molars or “wisdom teeth” diminished. However, the other 28 teeth are vital to your oral health, wellness, and appearance. Dr. Sakunthala Boppana offers tooth replacement options to restore your smile, at Perfect 32 Family Dentistry in Garland, TX.

Much more than a gap in your grin

Each tooth has an ideal position for efficient chewing and clear speech. When a tooth is lost, its companions shift out of place. That creates spaces and overlaps that trap bits of food. Since these nooks are tough to keep clean with brushing and flossing, harmful oral bacteria flourish, triggering tooth decay and gum disease.

Teeth are also essential for healthy facial bone. Each time you bite down, the roots of teeth stimulate strong bone density. Without that stimulation, the body resorbs bone and the face takes on a sunken appearance. With each missing tooth, you lose about ten percent of the capacity to bite, tear, and chew food. You may find it more difficult to eat a well-rounded diet, or experience digestive problems from not grinding food adequately.

Options for a complete smile

Dr. Boppana takes plenty of time to explain tooth replacement options and answer your questions. Together, you arrive at a solution that makes sense for your smile, budget, and lifestyle:
  • A dental implant is placed into jaw bone, replacing the root of a missing tooth. It is topped with a porcelain crown, restoring natural appearance and function. This is the only tooth replacement solution that fosters bone health.
  • A dental bridge holds up to three artificial teeth. It is fixed in place with crowns on teeth adjacent to the space.
  • A partial denture replaces one or multiple missing teeth in an arch. It clips to existing teeth for improved stability, but is removable for easy cleaning. A partial denture places some stress on anchor teeth, and the prosthetic must be replaced occasionally.
