Missing teeth can happen for a number of different reasons. For some patients, missing teeth can greatly affect their confidence in their smile.Cosmetic dentist Dr. Sal Lotardo is dedicated to helping patients restore their smile. At Bella Smiles in Riverhead, NY, we offer patients a wide range of tooth replacement options to help restore their natural smile.
Although missing teeth may not be aesthetically pleasing, they often are a sign of a more complex dental issue. Missing teeth can be caused by tooth decay, gum disease, trauma, and infection.It is also important to visit our Riverhead dental office as soon as possible after losing a tooth. Leaving a tooth root exposed makes the teeth more susceptible to tooth decay, tooth sensitivity, and infection. Dr. Lotardo will do a thorough examination of your teeth to determine what kind of treatment is needed to help restore health to your smile.
Tooth Replacement Options in Riverhead, NY
At Bella Smiles, we offer a variety of tooth replacement options for patients who are missing teeth. In order to determine which replacement option is right for you, Dr.Lotardo will need to thoroughly exam your mouth, teeth, and jaw. He will also need to take into consideration factors like your medical history and the reason behind your missing teeth, to determine which replacement option will best suit your dental needs. Once Dr. Lotardo completes the exam and consultation, he will discuss what replacement option works for you. At Bella Smiles, we offer:
