Do you have a missing tooth that is affecting your smile?
Missing teeth should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid additional dental problems that can affect treatment options. Left untreated, missing teeth will lead to bone loss in the jaw and changes in the bite as adjacent teeth shift position. Dr. Freano offers several tooth replacement options. After a comprehensive dental exam, he will recommend the most suitable options for your dental health, cosmetic goals and budget. We will never recommend unnecessary treatments, and do our best to offer affordable dental care fro all ages.
Dentures and Partials
Today’s cosmetic dentures can provide a natural looking option when several or all of the teeth have been lost or removed. Dentures can be removable or permanently secured with dental implants, also known as “all-on-four”. Whenever possible, Dr. Freano will recommend implant secured dentures because of their high rate of patient satisfaction and the benefits they offer for oral health.
A dental bridge is a removable appliance for replacing one or several lost teeth. As with dentures, a dental bridge can be removable (known as flipper teeth) or anchored by a dental crown or dental implant.
Dental implants are considered the most desirable option for replacing missing teeth because they function much like a natural tooth. Dental implants are secured into the jaw bone with a tiny titanium post which acts like a tooth root and reduces bone loss and subsequent jaw shrinkage.
Dr. Freano is one of few area dentists providing full services for dental implants. For patients, this means that all phases of the implant process are performed in his newly renovated Lexington dentist office. Dr. Freano will perform a thorough examination to ensure a patient is a good candidate for dental implants or implant secured dentures: sufficient jaw bone is necessary for the implantation of the titanium post.
Dental implants have had an over 95% success rate among current patients, enabling them to eat and speak normally. With proper dental care, dental implants provide a permanent solution to lost teeth.
