How your dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC, can restore your smile

Are you missing your smile because of lost teeth? If so, it’s only natural to think about tooth replacement options. Fortunately, you now have more ways to restore your smile than ever before. Dr. Cynthia Garner at Garner Family Dentistry in Mount Pleasant, SC, offers a wide range of tooth replacement options to give you back your smile.

Dental implants are one of the most popular choices to replace teeth. You can replace a single, multiple, or all of your missing teeth with dental implants. You can even provide support and stability for a denture, which is snapped in place over the implants.

Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. They never move around because they are firmly embedded in bone, so they are a permanent part of your smile. You never remove them. You brush and floss dental implants like natural teeth too. When you choose dental implants, you will be amazed by how natural-looking they are.

Dental appliances including partial and full dentures are another tried-and-true method of tooth replacement. They are made of lifelike materials and are comfortable to wear. They are a budget-friendly choice that offers years of excellent chewing function and beautiful appearance. You remove dental appliances to clean them, and when you go to sleep.

Dental bridgework is another common method of tooth replacement. A dental bridge consists of prosthetic teeth known as pontics. The pontics are surrounded with tissue-colored acrylic. The teeth one either side of the space receive dental crowns to support the bridge. The bridge is cemented in place on the adjacent teeth. Dental bridgework also offers the convenience of never taking it out. You brush a dental bridge normally, and floss underneath it using a floss threading tool.

You don’t have to go without your smile when help is just a phone call away. To find out more about tooth replacement options, call Dr. Cynthia Garner of Garner Family Dentistry in Mount Pleasant, SC, at (843) 884-6002. Call today!
