Tooth Replacement Options in Bethesda, MD
Drs. Prestipino and Sfondouris are experienced restorative dentists in Bethesda, MD. They are happy to help patients who have suffered from tooth loss in and around Montgomery County, Rockville, Chevy Chase, and Gaithersburg. Tooth loss has more than just a cosmetic impact on your smile. In addition, missing teeth increase your risk for tooth decay development and gum disease progression. This is why we prioritize helping our patients restore their smiles as soon as possible following tooth loss.
To ensure that we can meet the needs of our patients’ unique smiles, we offer a wide range of restorative dentistry solutions including dental bridges, dental implants, custom dentures, and partials. Depending on your needs and goals, we will come up with a restorative dentistry treatment plan that is best for you. Every patient is different. While some patients may prefer the fast and minimally-invasive results from dental bridges, others may be interested in an option that is more suited for the long-term like dental implants.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth impact your smile in a number of ways. Your teeth, gums, and jawbone were designed to work together when performing daily tasks like chewing or speaking. When you are missing one or more teeth, changes occur in the overall structure of your smile and it can become difficult to eat and speak comfortably and with confidence. The added strain that missing teeth place on your remaining dental structures could lead to jaw pain, tension headaches, and further dental damages.
Replacing teeth promptly will minimize the additional impact on the gums and jaw structure. The placement of dental implants will enhance restoration by also replacing the lost tooth root and supporting bone in the jaw. Drs. Prestipino and Sfondouris work with patients on an individual basis to evaluate needs, explore treatment options and create personalized treatment plans for a new smile.
If you have one or more missing teeth, schedule a consultation in our Montgomery County dentist office. We welcome new patients and offer second options for treatment plan recommendations.
