How Can You Replace That Tooth?
We'll restore that beautiful smile of yours in no time. Here's how.
Implants are a little costly, but they are easy to maintain and last a long time. A dental implant consists of three main parts:
The implant: The post serves as an artificial root of sorts. It's the part of the implant that is placed in the jaw and is typically made of titanium.
The abutment: This connector is attached to the dental implant in the jaw and connects the crown to the implant.
The crown: This is the final restoration of the tooth, and looks like a natural tooth but is made of porcelain.
Bridges are a cost-friendly option for those who have a missing tooth or multiple teeth missing in the same area. To create a traditional bridge, the dentist shaves down the natural teeth on each side of the gap created by the missing tooth (or teeth). Those enclosing teeth are then capped with crowns. The surrounding teeth with crowns are attached to a false tooth (or teeth), which acts as a bridge. There are four types of dental bridges:
Traditional: This involves a missing tooth (or teeth) and two flanking natural teeth, as described above.
Cantilever: Similar to the traditional bridge, except only one natural tooth is required next to the gap instead of two.
Maryland: Rather than using crowns on the abutment teeth, the Maryland bridge uses a framework of metal or porcelain to bond to the backs of those teeth.
Implant-supported: Instead of crowns or frameworks, dental implants surgically replace every missing tooth.
These affordable dentures are used by individuals who desire replacement teeth but can't have a bridge, either due to lack of teeth or for financial reasons. Unlike traditional dentures, RPDs have clasps of cobalt-chrome or titanium metal that clip onto the existing teeth, for added stability. The whole apparatus is removable, making it easy to maintain.

What To Do After A Tooth Extraction
How to traverse the road to recovery
After the dentist has successfully extracted your tooth, you'll receive guidance on managing the healing process. It's important that you follow the recommended guidelines for recovery, as failure to do so will delay your healing time. It typically takes a week or two to recover from the tooth extraction procedure, provided that aftercare instructions are closely followed. There are also several things you can do to hasten your natural recovery. First and foremost, get some rest. You'll want to minimize strenuous activity for the next 24 hours, at least. Following your tooth extraction, the dentist will give you a piece of gauze. While you're resting, bite down on the gauze and keep it in place for at least an hour. This will help your extraction
site to stop bleeding. Make sure to replace the gauze every so often, if possible. If the bleeding at the extraction site continues beyond a few hours, then it's time to try something else. Remove the gauze and place a wet tea bag on the extraction site. The acid in black tea assists in the clotting process. Finally, in addition to the gauze and tea bag methods, you can apply an ice pack to your cheek to reduce swelling. Place it as close as you can to the extraction site on the outside of your cheek for the best result. No matter how you slice it, you're still going to have to spend some time healing. Handling the situation properly will ensure that your recovery period goes as quickly and smoothly as possible.
What is tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction involves a dentist removing a tooth from your mouth. Extractions may be needed for a variety of reasons. For instance, your tooth may be infected to the point where it can't be saved. Or it may cause crowding, meaning that its emergence will disrupt the alignment of your other teeth. Or it may be impacted, meaning that it is unable to emerge from the gums.
What does tooth extraction cost?
The cost of a tooth extraction varies wildly, depending on the condition and location of the tooth.
Does tooth extraction hurt?
Not with us. We'll ensure that our extractions are practically painless. We use local anesthetic to numb your gums.
Is it better to undergo wisdom tooth removal sooner?
Yes. The extraction procedure is easier and there are fewer complications if your wisdom teeth's roots haven't fully developed yet. That's why it's important to handle wisdom tooth extraction as soon as possible.
What is the best option for replacing missing teeth?
There are many options for replacing missing teeth. Bridges, implants, and dentures are all alternatives to having empty gaps in one's mouth. Which option is best for you depends on your particular situation. Consult with us, and we'll help walk you through all your options.
Can I drink water after tooth extraction?
Yes, and in fact, it's important to drink lots of it. After your extraction, you'll want to drink six to eight glasses of water per day so that your body stays properly hydrated.
