A dental bridge literally bridges the gap left by one to three missing teeth in a row using a series of dental crowns bonded together. The crowns on either end are fitted over nearby teeth to give the entire prosthetic stability. In addition to restoring the appearance of the smile and enabling a patient to eat normally, bridges also prevent the remaining teeth from shifting into the space, which is always a threat after tooth loss.
If a patient is missing teeth throughout their mouth, or even an entire row, the right denture can bring them all back using one convenient prosthetic. Partial dentures can be uniquely shaped to complete the smile like the final piece of a puzzle, while full dentures sit directly on the gums to restore an entire arch. In addition to removable dentures, our patients can also choose to get implant-retained dentures to enjoy the most secure and natural-feeling fit possible.
Dental implants are completely revolutionary in the way they replace missing teeth. Rather than just restoring the visible portion, they bring back the crown as well as the root hidden below the gum line. A small titanium post is placed directly into the jawbone, and this provides the foundation for the new tooth/teeth. This makes implants much more stable and natural looking compared to other treatments, and with minimal maintenance, they can easily last for 30 years or more.
