Repairing Tooth Damage
Teeth that are chipped or cracked can eventually be lost if left untreated. Dr. Sousa will evaluate the condition of your teeth and look for any underlying dental problems that may be the root cause of your concerns. Teeth that have slowly become worn chipped or cracked without trauma can often be the result of a TMJ related disorder. Bite dysfunction can prevent the teeth from making proper contact and cause damage over time. Addressing a bite problem as part of your overall treatment plan will ensure that your dentistry is lasting and your dental health is stable.
Common treatments for addressing tooth damage can include:
Replacing Missing Teeth
Choosing the most suitable tooth replacement option involves a comprehensive evaluation of your dental health and a discussion about your personal goals for the function and aesthetics of your smile. We offer several options for you to consider, from dental bridges to implants. In most cases, Dr. Sousa will recommend a dental implant or implant supported denture or bridge to give you the most natural smile in both form and function.
Replacing a missing tooth or securing an ill-fitting denture can be life-changing, giving you back your quality of life and the ability to speak and eat with complete confidence. The sooner you replace a lost tooth, the better the result. Teeth that are missing for a period of time can lead to changes in the bite, shape of the jaw and shifting of remaining teeth.
