Restore Your Smile: Broken Teeth Repair

When a large piece of a tooth is knocked out, oftentimes the root and the pulp is exposed. This can result in moderate to severe pain levels and you’ll want to see your dentist ASAP to fix your smile and eliminate your pain. If you leave your tooth for a long period of time, you can experience more pain, swelling, infection, and even a medical emergency. To fix a single, or a few broken teeth, you may consider:

  • Dental Implant: Dental implants offer a permanent replacement for missing teeth and an effective solution that will look and feel as natural as your original teeth.
  • Porcelain Crown: A dental crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.
  • Dental Inlay: This replaces a moderately sized area of teeth that have been damaged due to tooth decay or trauma that are too large to be repaired by fillings.
  • Onlay: Onlays are fabricated outside of the mouth and are typically made out of porcelain.

Restore Your Smile: Missing Teeth Repair

If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, you may not have any immediate symptoms. However, over time, pressure will build on either side of the gaps and can collapse inwards, making opposing teeth start to move around. This is called malocclusion. Basically, the longer you wait to fix a missing tooth, the more complicated the fix will be. So, it’s very important to see your dentist right away and begin discussing potential restorations for a missing tooth/teeth. Options may include:

  • Dental Implants: a permanent replacement for missing teeth and an effective solution that will look and feel as natural as your original teeth.
  • Porcelain Bridges: – A fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
  • Dentures: There are three types of dentures, fixed, partial, and permanent. Dentures make it easier to speak and eat and can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.

Losing teeth can be frustrating and upsetting. Thankfully, there are two wonderful options that can bring your smile, and your dental health, all together and looking beautiful. These options are dentures and dental implants, but what’s the difference between the two? Let’s dive into what you need to know to make the best decision for yourself: Dentures vs Dental Implants.



Dentures have long been a tooth replacement option, as they are removable teeth designed to replace missing teeth and keep your mouth healthy. Dentures make it easier to speak and eat and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Dentures also help prevent your facial muscles from “sagging”.

There are two categories of dentures, complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • Complete dentures are required for patients who have no natural teeth left.
  • Partial dentures replace a few missing natural teeth and are attached to remaining healthy natural teeth.


There is an array of reasons that cause people to lose their teeth. Ailments such as gum disease, tooth decay, or direct injury to the mouth can cause teeth to dislodge from the mouth. For people who have lost their original teeth, dentures serve a much-needed function. They help to improve appearance and the way people eat or speak.  




Dentures are a kind of removable dental prosthetic that are used to replace natural teeth that have fallen out, decayed, or been extracted. They can be partial (used when you only have a few missing teeth) or complete (if you’re missing all your teeth), and there are different methods for securing them in your mouth.


These dental devices are a great solution for some people but not for others, so today we’ll discuss the pros and cons of false teeth and partials, who makes a good candidate for dentures, and potential alternatives for people when dentures aren’t the best option.
