Tooth loss affects millions of Americans every year. In fact, approximately 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth! By missing just one tooth, you’re actually putting yourself at higher risk of future tooth loss if you don’t get it replaced promptly. Furthermore, neighboring teeth can begin to shift, making your smile more crooked and more susceptible to decay. The good news is our Haverhill practice can effectively restore teeth in a number of ways, regardless of how extensive your tooth loss may be.
Bridges are natural-looking appliances designed to fill in a gap in the patient’s smile. Because every bridge from our office is custom-made, your finished prosthetic will blend in as it restores your smile’s health, beauty, and strength. While they can be made from gold alloys or from a porcelain and metal combination, we prefer to use all-ceramic restorations when we can because of the way they mimic the natural luminescence of tooth enamel.
Do you have an incomplete smile? At Dr. Karl Arakelian's dental practice in Haverhill, we offer quality dentures and partials to help patients just like you achieve a fuller, healthier smile. A partial denture can replace a few missing teeth and is held in place by clips or brackets. A full denture, meanwhile, replaces an entire row of upper or lower teeth and is held in place by suction or an over-the-counter adhesive. With proper care, you can enjoy your prosthetic for years to come.
Widely considered to be one of the most effective tooth replacement options available today, dental implants work to restore the entire tooth structure – not just the crown portion that sits on top. This is a large departure than what you’d find with traditional tooth replacements. Not only does it restore your biting force and help you maintain existing bone tissue, but it feels the most natural as a result. With proper care, it can last decades without issue.
