If you have had a tooth extracted or lost a tooth due to injury and it impacts your smile, it can leave you feeling embarrassed and lacking in confidence. Fortunately, Dr. Khal of DaVinci Dentistry is a board-certified prosthodontist who can help. Prosthodontists are highly trained and specialize in restoring missing teeth.
There are a number of ways for prosthodontists to help address a missing tooth, including dental bridges and implants. These are both very stable options and are secured permanently. Dental bridges are affixed to teeth next to the missing tooth, and dental implants are affixed using a titanium post which is used to replicate what would be a natural tooth ‘root.’ Implants take longer recovery time and are generally more expensive, but many patients prefer them over a bridge.
If you or someone you know is looking for a way to replace a lost tooth or teeth, be sure to contact us so we can discuss your options. We gladly welcome patients from Southlake, TX, and the surrounding area.
