Creating Your New Smile Solution

Arms Crossed KCMOThe replacement of a tooth after an extraction procedure is a process that may feel overwhelming to you. This is not a situation that you may have experience with, and the prosthodontic steps may confuse you or trip you up. It is important, however, that you gain a working knowledge of tooth replacement. There are a few different specific methods to place a new prosthetic at the site of your gap. Firstly, a dental bridge is a helpful system of repair that relies upon a hanging solution between two dental crowns. The replacement spreads the stress of chewing to the two remaining healthy teeth.

Dental implants are another form of prosthodontic renewal that center around the placement of a sturdy titanium post within the bone of your jaw. This metal has a special property that tricks the immune system into believing that your post is actually your own biological tissue. At Plaza Family Dentistry in Kansas City, MO, we have solutions for the replacement of your natural teeth. A new prosthodontic solution could restore your bite function while giving you a new source of confidence. (more…)
