REPLACING THE MISSING TOOTH

An inevitable possibility of life is losing one or more teeth. For contact sports people, this can be a major source of concern. Our focus today will be discussing the different options for management of missing tooth. Following trauma or loss of teeth, we could have partial loss or total lose of the tooth. Management options are hinged on whether it is partial or total loss of the tooth.

PARTIAL LOSS

This also depends on the severity and if the pulp is affected or not. When the pulp is not affected, a simple composite filling may suffice as an appropriate treatment.

Pulpal affectation will require a root canal treatment prior to the replacement . Another option for partial replacement could be a crown. Crowns may be made out of metal, ceramics (porcelain) or a combination of both. Each options offers a different form of advantage and a qualified Dentist chooses the best option with those considerations.

A dental crown is an artificial tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. A dental crown is mostly used in situations like.
1. To restore a broken tooth.
2. To improve the appearance of the tooth.
3. To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth.
4. To cover a dental implant.

TOTAL LOSS

Management options for total tooth loss also come in removable and fixed options. Removable as the name implies is an artificial tooth that can be removed willingly by the patient while the fixed option cannot be removed by the patient at will, except by a Dentist. The removable options are generally called DENTURES. They could be partial or full dentures.
