Do I Need Implants for Three Teeth Broken Near My Gums?

Posted by AllSmiles

Are dental implants the only way to save three teeth that broke near my gums? The teeth don’t hurt unless I bite or chew on them. My dentist recommends dental implants, but I want to know about alternatives. Thanks. Kristoff


Although you do not feel any pain, leaving traumatized teeth untreated and unprotected can lead to infection. So, get a second opinion quickly. Dental implants are the best option, but we will explain other possibilities.

What Are Your Options for Teeth Broken Near the Gumline?

Treatment options may include a dental implant or a dental bridge if your teeth break near the gumline. However, a dentist must examine your teeth and take X-rays to evaluate their condition and recommend treatment.

Dental implants are the best option for unsavable teeth. Implants limit bone loss and function like natural teeth. Although getting dental implants takes longer than other tooth replacement options, you can wear temporary replacement teeth after dental implant surgery. Implants have a substitute tooth root, connector, and crown to resemble natural teeth.

Dental bridge

A dental bridge may be an option for you. It can replace multiple missing teeth in a row. However, a bridge requires altering adjacent teeth to support it unless you get an implant bridge.

Partial denture

The ends of a partial denture will clasp onto adjacent teeth. It will not be as comfortable or durable as a dental bridge or dental implants.

Look for a dentist with advanced cosmetic dentistry and implant training and schedule an appointment. After an exam and X-rays, the dentist can explain your treatment options.
