5 Tooth Replacement Options Provided by Dakota Valley Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Dakota Valley Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery brings you a wide range of options with respect to tooth replacement. We have a number of temporary to permanent solutions, for individuals living in and around areas like Apple Valley, Eagan, Lakeville MN, Owatonna, Savage MN, and Shakopee. Age is not a factor when it comes to this task. But smoking or disease like diabetes and radiation therapy in that area have been proved to impede the rate of success for such implant placements. Your jaw x-rays are evaluated to know whether they will be suitable for the implants or if there is any need for some other test or procedure for the proper implanting procedures.

Here, we have a list of options that we provide for tooth replacement in Dakota Valley Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Take a look.

  1. Denture

For people who have missing teeth in a single jaw or both, go for the most common option, i.e. dentures. While some adapt well to this, others often find it uncomfortable and even intolerable owing to the different sizes and shapes of jaws.

  1. Dental Implants

Dental Implants are definitely comfortable, permanent, and most preferred solution. These form a strong foundation of the teeth, keeping the jaw strong and healthy. These also support individual teeth replacement and secure the specialized dentures in place. No healthy teeth are damaged and are a stable option for many.

  1. Fixed Bridge

A connected set of replacement teeth is referred to as a fixed bridge. It is cemented into position right at the top of the teeth which is adjacent to the empty space for support. The protective layer on the exterior is generally removed or grounded down before attaching the bridge.

  1. Metal Partial

This is a removable partial denture cast in plastic or metal, which forms a less delicate option and is held in place by wire clips. It can be removed and reinstated again whenever needed by the patient.

  1. Flipper

A removable plastic tooth in a plastic retainer is often a temporary, dainty, and cheaper solution, commonly known as a “Flipper”.
