Regardless of the reason, if you have several teeth that are missing or broken down, it can impact your life in many ways. It may have been a while since you felt confident about your smile. You are probably avoiding foods that are either too cold, hot, or hard to chew. The good news is that there are several options other than traditional dentures that can restore your dental health.
Get Modern, Secure Tooth Replacements
Many people who come to see us do not want dentures that may slide or come off while eating and speaking. Even if your teeth look like they cannot be fixed, a detailed exam by Dr. Gloria Kim may reveal that your teeth are in better shape than you thought. Dr. Kim believes in taking conservative approaches whenever possible to minimize the cost of treatment and loss of teeth. Dental restoration through crowns, bridges, and implants may be a great way to preserve as many teeth as possible.
In cases where most of your teeth are failing, implant-supported dentures at our Stone Ridge dental office can be secured to dental implants to replace all of your teeth. These appliances are not removable like traditional dentures, so there is no worry that they will slip when you are eating and speaking.

Tooth Replacement in South Riding, VA
When one or more teeth are lost, you have a few options for tooth replacement. It wasn’t that long ago when the only options for tooth replacement were bridges and dentures. With the advancements in dental implant technology, it is possible to replace missing teeth without grinding on adjacent teeth for dental bridges or wearing removable appliances like dentures. A dental implant is an excellent choice for tooth replacement that looks and feels like your own tooth.
A dental implant is designed to replace the root of a missing tooth. A biocompatible titanium implant is placed in the jawbone where a tooth is missing. Over time, the dental implant integrates with the bone and serves to support a crown that looks, feels, and functions like your own tooth. Dental implants are also ideal for replacing several missing teeth. Multiple implants can be placed to support a bridge or dentures that are stable and secure.
Successful Dental Implants Depend on You
To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Good oral hygiene at home and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
