Family Dental Practice Offers Wide Range of Teeth Replacement Treatments, Protecting Patients From Further Tooth Damage

Bridgewater Family Dental has been working diligently to protect patients from tooth damage and alignment issues through teeth replacement since the office’s founding in 2010. Teeth replacement options are offered to patients suffering from missing or removed teeth, in order to help prevent further complications and keep the mouth intact and healthy. 

Teeth may be missing or removed from the mouth for several reasons. Teeth with non-restorable damages caused by tooth fractures, large cavities, or chips in the tooth may be taken out and replaced with an alternative. Additionally, the proper number of teeth may not have formed naturally within a patient’s mouth, causing the empty space left by the missing teeth to be replaced with tooth alternatives. 

When replacing a removed or missing tooth, patients may choose between 3 options – implants, bridges, or removable partial dentures. Dental implants and bridges are fixed replacements, meaning that they are permanently affixed to either the base of a pre-existing tooth base (bridge) or attached directly to the jawbone (implant). These options are the most durable ones. 

Removable partial dentures are a removable option, meaning they are not anchored to the mouth the way a bridge or implant would be. These tooth replacements are often glued into the mouth to give them some stability. 

Regardless of the replacement option chosen by a patient, these tooth replacements are all successful in protecting the mouth from any further complications stemming from a missing tooth. Without a replacement tooth, the surrounding teeth may attempt to move around in the mouth to occupy the newly opened space. This can cause an uneven bite, as well as excess pressure on the front teeth, which may lead to a new tooth fracture or chip inside the mouth. 

If left untreated, this problem will snowball and get worse, making high-quality and efficient treatment extremely important. 

“Without the proper number of teeth in the mouth, the surrounding teeth will shift and move, as they are no longer held in place by the newly missing tooth,” said Dr. Marwan Bassil, the primary dentist at Bridgewater Family Dental and Northstar Dental Care. “This may lead to the patient doing unconscious damage to the rest of their teeth, especially when the front teeth – which are designed to bite off food – are not supported by properly aligned back teeth. The missing tooth could lead to a new tooth fracture, and require further expensive/extensive treatment.”
