Tooth Replacement

Millions of people in America require tooth replacement every year for one reason or another. In addition to filling unsightly gaps that could affect the beauty of your smile, the following procedures offered at Dr. Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox’s practice in Swedesboro aim at improving the function of your teeth and ensuring your overall wellbeing. Tooth replacement can be done in a variety of ways.

Tooth Replacement:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed in the jawbone in place of a missing tooth. These roots are made of titanium posts and can anchor further restorative or cosmetic devices such as crowns, dentures, partials, and bridges. As Dr. Fox is Hybridge certified, rest assured that you will be in safe hands throughout and get the best results once your treatment is completed. Read more here.

Hybridge Dental Implants

These implants are a cross between bridge and dental implants, and look like dentures or bridges. To be effective, Dr. Kilpatrick-Fox uses a series of implants to fill in spaces in the upper and lower jaws. The implants become a permanent solution for missing teeth unlike dentures or bridges. It is made from chrome cobalt metal with resin teeth and pink acrylic materials. Because of the chrome cobalt metal, the Hybridge implant is durable and effective. Read more here.

Mini Implants

Mini implants are the latest in dental implantology. Not only are these implants cost-effective, but they allow implant-supported restorations to be placed where standard implants may not be possible. Mini implants can be as small as 1.8 mm in diameter. Read more here.

Dentures and Partials

If you happen to be missing multiple teeth, full and partial dentures are the solution for you. They are replacement teeth that look and function like normal teeth. Unlike implants, you can take them out of your mouth at night if you want. With proper care, dentures can last for years. Read more here.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

The restoration of all your upper and lower teeth is called full mouth reconstruction. During this process, every damaged or decayed tooth is restored with the help of necessary treatments. If we discover damage to the tissues and gums in your mouth, Dr. Elizabeth Fox and her experienced dental staff will treat these to restore the beauty and function of your smile. Read more here.
