Replacing Missing Teeth

Replacing missing teeth is imperative to protecting the health and integrity of the bite and smile. Replacing missing teeth will help to prevent the deterioration of the gums, teeth and jaw bone.

Missing teeth jeopardize the integrity of the jaw and facial structure. The patient with missing teeth often experiences bone deterioration and facial recession. Without the structural support from the missing tooth root, the bone can not stabilize the teeth. Teeth may shift, loosen and even fall out and the jaw line will recede, leaving the face looking sunken in and withdrawn. This can lend a more aged appearance.

Periodontal disease, tooth decay, and bite problems are all common after prolonged tooth loss. Dr. Pruitt offers comprehensive cosmetic and restorative dental treatments to help patients build a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Pruitt will work with you to choose the dental restorations that will meet your cosmetic goals while improving and stabilizing your overall oral health.

The type of denture you and Dr. Pruitt choose will be determined by your budget, cosmetic goals, oral health, and lifestyle. The exact procedure process will vary depending on the type of denture you choose to replace your missing teeth.

Dr. Pruitt will take molds of your mouth to create a custom designed denture. Dentures are made from high quality, durable dental materials that look and feel like natural teeth.

If dental implants, mini implants or All On Four are chosen to secure your denture, you will work with Dr. Pruitt to schedule the surgical placement phase of the implant post.

The All On Four process uses advanced treatment planning to allow for the same day placement of both implants and a denture for an instant new smile.
