Replacing Missing Teeth with Dr. Gayle Bradshaw, The Woodlands Periodontist

The majority of people will encounter missing teeth due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury at some point. There are many options used by Dr. Gayle Bradshaw, The Woodlands periodontist, for the replacement of missing teeth, whether single, multiple, or a full set.

A Single Tooth Replaced by The Woodlands Periodontist in The Woodlands, TX

Multiple Missing Teeth in The Woodlands, TX

When replacing a single tooth, The Woodlands periodontist recommends a dental implant. Other alternatives include a removable partial denture and a fixed partial denture.

The removable partial denture is a single artificial tooth held in your mouth with metal attachments. Patients who have this partial denture dislike the discomfort associated with it as well as the fact that the metal is visible.

A fixed partial denture is much more secure but requires the alteration of your healthy teeth. A fixed partial, or dental bridge, is commonly used by The Woodlands periodontist to replace missing teeth. For a single tooth, the bridge would consist of three crowns joined together. The center crown would be suspended across the site of the missing tooth while the adjacent crowns would be fitted to your natural teeth by the Woodlands periodontist.

Multiple Missing Teeth Replaced by The Woodlands Periodontist

The replacement options for multiple missing teeth used by The Woodlands periodontist are individual dental implants, removable and fixed bridges.

Dental bridges consist of combined crown units that perfectly replace the space left by your missing teeth. The removable version is secured to your gums using clips or metal attachments and lack the stability afforded by the fixed dental bridges.

The fixed dental bridge is placed by The Woodlands periodontist by using dental implants as anchors. Instead of using your healthy teeth to accommodate the crowns at either end of the dental bridge, dental implants are strategically placed to hold the dental bridge and replacing your missing teeth.
