If you’ve had a tooth extraction to protect your oral health and are now hoping to replace the missing tooth, you have come to the right place, here at Ocean State Oral Surgery Center, L.L.C.. You don’t need to go around with a hole in your mouth that can throw off your bite and compromise your smile. There are options to consider, and when you contact our team at 401-353-1515, we can book an appointment with our expert, Dr. Aaron Ercole.

Option 1: Having an implant placed that looks and acts like a natural tooth. If you have enough bone in the area, you may be a good candidate for a dental implant, one that can last for many years.
Option 2: A dental bridge can close any gaps by providing stability to each side of the missing tooth. A bridge looks just as natural as your own teeth and can restore the appearance of your smile.
Option 3: Using orthodontic treatment, such as braces, can shift the teeth together, helping to seal the gap from the missing tooth; this is a permanent solution and may not take as long as the usual treatment time.
Option 4: A removable partial denture may be a good idea to replace a missing tooth, and are less costly than a tooth-supported bridge, however, they don’t look as natural or are as flexible.
Option 5: If it is a back molar and will not affect your smile, you may choose to leave it alone; however, it may cause issues in the future, so it’s best to consult with the dentist in North Providence, Rhode Island.

If cost is an issue, please get in touch with our dental team and let us help you work out a financial plan.
