Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What Are the Options for Lost Tooth Restoration?

A lost tooth can be restored in a couple of different ways. There are both removable options and permanent options, and each patient can make the choice based on their own goals and lifestyle. If removable teeth replacement is what you're looking for, dentures or a removable dental bridge may be the best choice. Options in fixed teeth replacements include dental implants and fixed dental bridges. Regardless of which option that you choose, the replacement teeth will be crafted according to the measurements of your mouth, which allows for a natural look.

How Long Does a Fixed Tooth Replacement Last?

It depends on the patient, but it is very common for dental implants to last for 10 to 15 years. Even when the dental implant needs replacement, it is often only the porcelain crown part of the implant that needs to be changed. The porcelain crown lasts for the same amount of time on a titanium implant that it would last on a genuine tooth. The framework part of the implant, which is installed in the jaw, often lasts for a lifetime.

How Is a Cracked Tooth Restored?

When a tooth cracks, it becomes very vulnerable to bacteria and infection. If the crack is not repaired, there is a risk of the tooth eventually splitting into two pieces. The best solution for a cracked tooth is often a crown. If the crack was addressed promptly, the crown can be created and fitted atop the cracked tooth without additional dental procedures. However, if the cracked tooth has become damaged, it may require root canal therapy to make it healthy again before the crown can be placed. The crown will keep the tooth crack from spreading further and will allow you to use your tooth normally again.
