Our wide range of services for the replacement of missing teeth includes dental implants, dental bridges and dentures.
One or more missing teeth can impact your self-confidence, oral health and physical well-being. If missing teeth are not replaced in a timely manner, your oral health will begin to deteriorate. The loss of bone and shifting of teeth can change the shape of the jaw, making it more difficult to chew and speak comfortably.
Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Dr. Hassan works with patients on an individual basis to replace lost teeth. There is a range of factors that can affect treatment options and outcomes and Dr. Hassan takes the time to thoroughly evaluate your oral health condition and understand your overall health and aesthetic goals before recommending the most suitable option. A personal treatment plan will be presented and we will explain all aspects of your care so that you know what to expect.
- Dental implants – Dental implants are a more permanent solution for missing teeth. The implant actually replaces the root of the tooth, becoming fully integrated with the bone. Dental implants are generally the most expensive replacement option, but they also require the least maintenance. Not all patients qualify for dental implants. The location of the missing tooth as well as the overall health of the patient and bone structure will be evaluated before the dentist recommends treatment. Dr. Hassan provides dental implant services from the comfort of our Centreville, VA dentist office. Our in-house dental implant services help to streamline the implant process making replacing missing teeth more convenient for our patients.
- Dental bridge – A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth and can be either a removable appliance or fixed. Dental bridges provide a conservative and highly affordable option and modern technology enables Dr. Hassan to create a natural looking replacement that can last for many years.
- Dentures, Denture Implants – When all of the top or bottom arches of teeth have been lost, a denture can be created to restore function and the ability to eat and speak normally. Dentures can be removable or fixed by using dental implants to anchor them. Whenever possible, Dr. Hassan will recommend an implant secured denture, strategically placing as few as four dental implants for a comfortable and permanent solution.
