Tooth loss can affect your oral health, appearance, and how you perceive yourself in the world. Not only can tooth loss cause wear or mobility for remaining teeth, but it can also lead to health issues, such as gum disease and stroke. Without a complete set of teeth, chewing and eating your food can be a massive challenge. It can also put a damper on your self-confidence when socializing and prevent you from meeting new people, pursuing exciting career paths, and excelling in academics. 

Fortunately, if you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth, our dental team at Chesapeake Bay Dentistry can help you reclaim your smile with bridges, dentures, or dental implants. Our tooth replacements are customized to meet your unique needs and give you a healthy and beautiful smile. 

Restore Your Smile to Its Former Glory 

If you have missing teeth, we have options for your smile to improve your mouth’s function, appearance, and overall health. 

#1 Dental Bridges 

A dental bridge can replace one or several missing teeth and relies upon dental crowns to remain secure. You no longer have to worry about smiling in public, struggling to chew, or oral health concerns that typically accompany tooth loss with a dental bridge. 

#2 Dentures

We offer complete, partial, and implant-supported dentures to replace some or all of your missing teeth. These custom-made appliances restore your ability to bite, chew, and speak with comfort and confidence. These options have their unique benefits and necessary preparations, which your dentist can discuss with you in more detail. 

#3 Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small, titanium post your dentist surgically places in the jaw, beneath the gums, to secure an artificial tooth. A dental implant is permanent and replicates the natural strength and look of teeth. And the best part? You never have to worry about your teeth sliding or slipping out of place while enjoying meals or chatting with friends! 

Our dental team at Chesapeake Bay Dentistry wants to help you attain the vibrant, healthy smile you deserve. Please contact us today to learn more about tooth replacement in Annapolis, MD, or schedule your appointment with Dr. Polizois.
