LVI trained, Fairfax, Virginia cosmetic dentist, Dr. Pamela Marzban, offers our patients several solutions for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dentures have long been considered an adequate solution for tooth replacement, but they can be uncomfortable, and they are incapable of preventing jaw collapse, a common consequence of missing teeth. Working with Dr. Marzban, the best option for replacing your teeth can be determined.
Alternatives to Dentures
The two alternatives to dentures offered by Dr. Marzban are:
- Dental bridges – one of three types of bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth
- Dental implants – the only permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are inserted directly into your jaw and accepted as a natural tooth root
Dental implants may be used to hold dental bridges into place, and both implants and bridges can be used as a more secure hold for dentures. During your initial consultation with Dr. Marzban, the method, or combination of methods most suited to meet your needs will discussed with you in full.
