The gaps that exist in your smile no longer have to remain part of your daily appearance. With the help of a dental bridge, we can fill in the space and restore your arch. With this type of restoration, we need anchors to hold it in place. Turning to healthy abutment teeth that exist on either side of the gap, we can alter them so that the customized bridge will be secured on top. The remaining pontics (artificial teeth) can rest on your gums, delivering the look of a complete smile.
Patients who experience significant tooth loss can struggle with typical daily tasks that should be simple — like chewing food thoroughly, speaking clearly, and smiling confidently. If you’re missing numerous teeth or a full arch in the upper or lower jaw, partial and full dentures offer complete restoration of the lost dental structure.
Partials are used to fill gaps in smiles while preserving remaining healthy teeth, and a full denture replaces complete arches of missing teeth. Both types of dentures use a gum-colored base to provide support for replacement teeth. Partials fit between remaining teeth and are held in place with metal clasps, and full dentures are crafted so the base fits tightly against the gums, creating suction that holds the prosthetic in position.
Permanent prosthetics are no longer a dream. Using dental implants that are made of titanium, you can embrace the reality of a longer-lasting smile. When placed into the jawbone, they deliver continuous stimulation to minimize facial collapse as well as offer durability and stability when supporting customized crowns, bridges, or dentures. As the only tooth replacement option that can restore the root and crown of a tooth, dental implants are considered far superior to their traditional counterparts.
