If you are considering tooth replacement options, you might have a lot of questions, and rightfully so! There's a lot to think about when choosing the best treatment option to restore your smile, and your Northborough dentists are here to help!

Tooth Replacement Options

Whether you are living with one or multiple compromised or missing teeth, you can rest assured that there are some excellent solutions for restoring your smile. Some of the options you might think about are:

A full or partial denture is an ideal option for restoring multiple or an entire arch of missing teeth. Traditionally dentures and partials are removable; however, you can use dental implants to provide a more secure and stable fit.

A dental bridge can replace a single tooth or a few missing teeth in a row. This option can be useful for those who don't want to have surgery, or who don't have enough healthy bone to support dental implants.

The Benefits of Dental Implants in Northborough

Dentists consider tooth implants the most effective tooth replacement option because they replace both your tooth and root. When you lose a root, you also lose bone support as your jawbone will begin to deteriorate. A dental implant keeps your bone healthy, stimulated, and regenerating, while also replacing aesthetics and function to your smile.

Choosing dental implants in Northborough, MA to replace your tooth is a wise investment in your smile and also provides longevity since implants can potentially last for a lifetime. You will likely need to replace other options like bridges and dentures over time.

Dental implants are a reliable procedure with a stunning 95 percent success rate. Better yet, Dr. Alexander Moheban can guide you through the entire process from start to finish at our Northborough dental office, so you'll never need to go elsewhere for any aspect of your treatment.
