At Pollard Dental, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth, but unfortunately that is not always possible. At times, tooth decay, gum disease, or other medical conditions can lead to the difficult decision to extract most if not all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. While our first recommendation for a tooth replacement option is typically dental implants, that is not always a viable option for a number of patients. In those cases, we recommend dentures. Dentures have been used for many years to replace teeth, and with advancements in dental techniques and technology, they have come a long way.
Have you read about the impact of missing teeth on your oral health and decided that it is time to choose a tooth replacement option? We know that it is an extremely difficult and personal decision to replace a tooth. We want to assure our patients that, at Pollard Dental, we work with each and every person to make sure they are informed about each replacement option and help them in every way to make their decision. We are happy to answer any and all questions that come our way. We wanted to take a moment to give a brief explanation of some of the tooth replacement options we offer.
Are you missing a tooth or teeth and are hesitant to choose a tooth replacement option? Are you deciding if you even need to replace your tooth? At Pollard Dental, we know how emotional missing a tooth can be, especially if it is in the front of your mouth and is visible when you talk or smile. We also know that at times patients deliberate whether to replace a rear tooth that is not quite as visible. There are many circumstances that can lead to your hesitation such as cost, length of procedure, and recovery time. We want to stress the importance of speaking with our staff and coming up with a solution that you feel comfortable with. Not replacing a tooth can lead to further complications that can cause discomfort and added expense.
