Replacing Missing Teeth – Granby, CT
We Fill in the Gaps
in Your Smile
If you’ve lost one or more adult teeth, you can have a different experience than those with a full set of teeth. Not only can your smile have holes and make you feel self-conscious, but your remaining teeth can also shift to be more evenly spaced. As a result, your bite can change, causing jaw pain or some teeth to wear down faster. That’s why Dr. Endres and Dr. Chawla always recommend replacing missing teeth in Granby, CT with a strong restoration. Interested in learning more?

Why Choose Salmon Brook Dental Associates for Replacing Missing Teeth?
- Gentle, Experienced Dentists
- Knowledgeable Team of Professionals
- Dental Implant Placement Performed In-House
When one up to three missing teeth in a row are surrounded by healthy teeth, a dental bridge can fill in the gap and help the other teeth stay in proper alignment. This restoration consists of three or more dental crowns fused together with the center crowns solid to replace missing teeth. The end crowns are left hollow to attach to the teeth on either side, giving the restoration stability.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Whether you’re missing teeth that are spread throughout the arch or even all of them, partial or full dentures are still a popular replacement option even after hundreds of years. And it’s not hard to see why. This simple restoration can give you back a confident smile for a relatively low cost. These days, modern prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored acrylic base and rely on either suction or clasps to keep the denture in place.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to replacing your missing teeth, you should definitely consider dental implants. Instead of just addressing the top part of the missing tooth, implants start by replacing the missing root in the jaw bone. As a result, this option offers much more stability, better oral health, and a more natural look and feel. In addition, dental implants tend to last significantly longer than traditional dentures and bridges.
