The Problem with Traditional Tooth Replacement
When teeth are lost due to decay, injury, trauma or disease the surrounding bone starts to deteriorate. Adjacent teeth will start to drift out of place causing joint and bite problems. Unfortunately, traditional methods of replacing these missing teeth like dental bridges or partial dentures come with a risk of complications. While they are effective, traditional methods do not preserve bone levels and surrounding healthy teeth require augmentation to support the appliance.
Bridges and partial dentures also require regular repair and replacement, costing you money and disrupting your daily schedule. However, you can permanently replace your missing teeth with dental implants in Norwalk, CT, with Dr. Kaplan.
