Replacing Missing Teeth

A bright Hollywood smile can feel unattainable for some people; especially if you have missing teeth. Hicks Dental Group wants you to know the beautiful smile of your dreams can in fact be yours! We can help with all your dental needs such as cosmetic dentistry, as well as your missing teeth.

The Smiling Effect

We rarely realize how much a smile affects us. It can be a simple thing, but if you are feeling uncomfortable about your smile, you may be smiling less. Studies show that smiling can actually trick your brain into being happy, even when you may not be. There is a physical reaction that occurs when you smile and hormones are released in your brain to activate the joyful part of life. If you are not smiling due to fear of what your smile may look like, we can help.

Different Methods for Replacing Teeth

Depending on your specific needs, whether you have several missing teeth or just loose teeth, there are a few different options we can help you with. We are passionate about helping create beautiful smiles and your options are customized to your needs. These options may include:

  • Dental Bridges– a way to replace individual teeth by bringing strength through a bridging technique.
  • Single Dental Implants – the closest alternative to an actual tooth replacement.
  • Full or Partial Dentures – a good replacement option when several or all teeth are missing.

It has been found that the average adult residing in America will have lost at least 12 teeth by the time they turn 50. When we give you the four wisdom teeth that are a normal occurrences of needing to come out, that still leaves three teeth still missing for the average adult. That is a lot of missing teeth. We can feel safe to say that we are knowledgeable on our techniques and able to provide services custom to your specific needs. Contact us today to learn more!
