Many people lose teeth, and as devastating as this can be, it can happen to anyone for a number of different reasons. Many individuals lose teeth gradually as they get older, their teeth and their overall oral health weakening with age. Others may lose teeth because of excessive decay and disease, and still others can lose teeth because of injuries and accidents. No matter what, you need to replace lost teeth sooner rather than later, and we here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point can provide you with the Fort Myers Florida dental treatment you need to restore both your health and your smile.
In addition to other treatment you may need, it is necessary to replace missing teeth and repair any remaining teeth in order to help your dental health. Having an incomplete smile with teeth missing, or having no teeth at all, can put stress and strain on your bite and on your jaw. It can make things like eating and speaking difficult, and it can also alter your appearance. Depending on the specific nature of your condition, we here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point may suggest options for Fort Myers Florida dental treatment like dentures, bridges or dental implants. Dentures are common and are widely used. They are used to replace sections or entire rows of teeth, but are made so that they are removable when needed. Bridges are similar in that they can be removed easily, but they can also be anchored into the mouth as well. Bridges are used to replace one or few teeth and use dental crowns to anchor these artificial replacements in place. Implants are surgically attached to your jawbone so they look, feel and perform the most like real teeth. They can replace few or many teeth, but not everyone wants to undergo the surgery needed and others cannot.
