Have Questions About Replacement Teeth? Our San Francisco Dentists Can Help!

by | Date Published:

There are more tooth replacement options than ever before available to patients suffering from tooth loss. Our San Francisco dentists are here to share information about completing and restoring your smile after tooth loss.

What kinds of treatments does Dr. Walley offer?

There are a number of available restorative options to address tooth loss. Dentures are designed to replace a full complement of consecutive teeth. Bridges, like dentures, sit on top of the patient’s gum tissue, but they are attached to adjacent teeth, which is how they stay in place. Now, dental implants, on the other hand, have replacement roots, made of titanium, that extend into the patient’s jawbone tissue. A titanium root not only holds the replacement tooth in place, it also bonds with the natural jawbone tissue, to keep the patient’s smile healthy. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, our team is also able to permanently anchor larger dental prostheses, like dentures, with mini titanium roots.

How long does treatment take?

This will depend on what type of tooth replacement treatment you choose for your smile. Traditional dental implants take the longest to complete, as oral tissues need to heal between the time that implant roots are inserted and the final restorations are attached. Dentures and bridges take only a few appointments to complete, because they are designed to sit on top of the gum tissue. Mini dental implant roots, being thinner than conventional roots, are minimally disruptive to the bone tissue, and thus require little post-treatment recovery time.

How do I know which type of restoration is right for me?

There are a number of important considerations to take into account when assessing tooth replacement treatments. When you meet with our team, we’ll talk about the costs, treatment timelines, and post-treatment maintenance routines, so that you can get a better idea of the benefits of each.

Don’t let tooth loss go untreated—there are restorative options available! Our San Francisco dentists can answer your questions and help you choose the perfect treatment for you.
