Did you know that missing just one tooth can make a big impact on your daily life? Chewing food is significantly more difficult as your bite becomes weaker, especially if you lose additional teeth. Since the risk for future tooth loss only goes up with every missing tooth, it’s more important than ever to get it replaced. Texas Dentistry has not one, but multiple solutions for tooth loss, whether it’s dental bridges or dental implants. If you’re ready for treatment to replace missing teeth in Mesquite, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
If you need to replace one or more consecutive teeth, our dental office can design and create a dental bridge that uses existing teeth as an anchor to fill your smile’s gap. Several crowns are fused together to form a dental bridge. A dental crown on either side of the bridge is hollowed out so that it can be seated effectively on your natural teeth. While a small amount of tooth enamel is removed to accommodate this bridge, it will ensure that the bridge stays secure in the long-term and becomes a natural part of your smile.

Do you have multiple missing teeth on opposite sides of your mouth? Are you missing all the teeth in your arch like millions of other Americans? Full and partial dentures can offer a quick and affordable solution that does not require invasive surgery. Dentures are designed to fit your mouth exactly, ensuring a comfortable and reliable fit. Full dentures use natural suction and the shape of your mouth to remain stable, while partial dentures use metal hooks that wrap around your individual teeth.
Dental implants are widely considered to be the most effective solution and the gold standard for tooth replacement. This is because they are designed to replace the crown and root of missing teeth, meaning it integrates with your existing bone and gum tissue. Once fully integrated, it will be reliably anchored and feel almost identical to your natural tooth! If multiple teeth need to be replaced at the same time, dental implants can be made in tandem with other more complex restorations.
