Replace Missing Teeth Sherwood & Canby

Tooth replacement options for a natural looking smile

Do you have one or more missing teeth?

Do not let a missing tooth take over your life. Whether it is the long-term risks of having a missing tooth or you just do not like the look of it, replacing a missing tooth is crucial for the long-term health of your mouth and smile.

At Cary Dental, we listen to every patient and treat them as an individual when working to replace their teeth. We know every situation is unique and work with you to meet your needs.

What causes missing teeth?

Missing teeth can happen for several reasons, including accidents, but generally, it is due to degenerative oral health issues. This could include:

 

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Tooth fracture or break
  • Tooth wear or gum recession

Long-term effects of a missing tooth

While we work with many patients who are concerned about the appearance of a missing tooth, the far bigger issue is the negative health implications with a missing a tooth.

Your mouth is like a finely engineered building — without all the structural pieces working as they should, everything else starts to break down. With a missing tooth, the surrounding teeth, jaw bone, and gum tissue all start to have their own problems. This can lead to losing additional teeth and bone loss, making the situation even worse the longer your mouth goes without that crucial missing tooth.

Treating a missing tooth

There can be numerous reasons a tooth is missing. As such, the treatments required to fix your missing teeth may vary. Until we perform a comprehensive exam and take necessary x-rays to see where your oral health is at, it is impossible to know the exact treatment that is right for you. During your exam, the Doctor will listen to what your needs are and with that in mind give you different options for replacing teeth to meet your needs.

Common treatments for missing teeth include:

  • Dental implants
  • Bridges
  • Crowns
  • Bone grafts

Dental implants: The best way to replace a missing tooth

For most patients, the best way to replace a missing tooth is through dental implant treatment. Dental implants completely replace your missing tooth down to the root. This is the best way to replace all functions of your teeth and ensure a tooth restoration that looks and feels just like your original teeth.

We offer a full range of tooth replacement treatments and Dr. Cary is accredited by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. This means that you will not be sent to a specialist for most treatments. We can do everything right in our office so you can work with a dentist you trust.

Smile Makeover

This patient had worn and crooked teeth. Crowns were needed to prevent fractures. Unfortunately, a  misaligned bite would cause the crowns to wear, too. A full mouth rehabilitation, including braces and crowns, was the answer.

Dental Implants & Smile Makeover

This patient’s front teeth were discolored and worn. One tooth was cracked and had to be removed. We used a dental implant and four new crowns to restore her smile.

Orthodontics (Teenager)

This patient came to our office with crowded teeth, a narrow arch, and poor bite. We used Crozat orthodontics and braces to help her jaw grow, creating room for adult teeth and fixing her poor bite.

Dental Implants

This patient was missing her two front teeth. A failing bridge was damaging the supporting teeth. Using two dental implants and four crowns, we restored her smile.

Orthodontics

This patient had extremely crowded teeth, impacted canine, and an overbite. We used Crozat orthodontics and braces to correct her bite and bring the impacted tooth into the correct position.

Dental Implants

This patient had several failing crowns and missing teeth.  Using a combination of dental implants and crowns, we restored his smile and gave him a more youthful appearance.

Braces & Implant

This patient wanted to improve her smile. Her poor bite was causing her teeth to become loose and worn. She also suffered from gum recession. We used invisible braces, a dental implant, and veneers to enhance her smile.

Crowns & Orthodontic

This patient had old crowns, tooth decay, and a poor bite. We corrected her bite with the help of custom orthodontics, which helped her new crowns look better and last longer, too.
