What are my options for replacing missing teeth?
There’s no doubt that a noticeable gap in your smile can ruin your appearance and make you feel self-conscious. But missing teeth can also create other oral health problems, so Dr. Farahani always recommends replacing them with something.
Dental implants are an incredible innovation in dentistry. We can use a single implant to replace a missing tooth or to support a bridge if you have several teeth missing in the same location of your mouth.
We also commonly use dental implants at our Austin, TX dental office to hold full or partial dentures securely in place. You may hear this referred to as All-on-Four because, in many cases, we need just four dental implants to support a full set of dentures.
The dental implants are placed at specific points along your jaw. After they heal, your fully customized dentures snap securely onto the implants. Your dentures won’t unexpectedly slip or move, so they improve your comfort and your confidence.
Dr. Farahani understands that having a tooth replaced is a big step, and we want you to feel confident about the treatment you choose. Dental implants are an excellent option, but so are dental implants and dentures. Please call our Austin, TX dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange an Invisalign appointment with Dr. Farahani.
