Each tooth in the mouth works together so you can speak clearly, chew comfortably, and smile and laugh with ease. If one or more teeth are missing, it can have an effect your whole mouth. Teeth sometimes move to fill in a gap where a tooth was extracted, making the surrounding teeth more vulnerable to decay as well as displacement. If the missing tooth is in the front of your mouth, eating foods like apples can be challenging. Some people even hold back big smiles, not wanting others to notice the gap left from a missing tooth. Fortunately, all of these issues can be resolved with dental implants for full mouth restoration in Rancho Sante Fe. Dr. Weston Spencer is an expert dentist who offers a wide variety of options for restorative dentistry, including dental implants.
Individual Tooth Implants
Dental bridges are a wonderful option for patients with multiple teeth missing. Unlike other San Diego dentists, Dr. Spencer custom crafts dental bridges specifically for your mouth. Some dental bridges can be attached to adjacent teeth while in the case of dental implants, dental bridges with implants do not need to involve the other healthy teeth and can attach to the implantations instead. This method is ideal to protect the healthy surrounding teeth from the process required to affix traditional dental bridges to the surface.
