If you lack one or several adjacent teeth, consider a dental bridge. This option is a fixed restoration made of crowns fused to either side of a replacement tooth. Per its name, it literally “bridges” the gap between your remaining teeth. However, keep in mind that it relies on your natural teeth for support. The appliance’s crowns fit over nearby pearly whites, altering them in the process. In exchange, though, treatment results can last for a decade or more.
Patients with more severe tooth loss may need custom dentures. These prosthetics consist of multiple artificial teeth attached to a pink-colored base. They normally come in two types: partial or full. Partial dentures rest on a metal framework and only replace a few teeth. Meanwhile, full models sit directly on the gums and restore an entire arch of teeth at once. Either way, both types of dentures can be removed for daily cleaning at any time.
For a more permanent option for replacing missing teeth, we invite you to try dental implants. These restorations are titanium posts placed directly into the jawbone. Over time, they gradually fuse with surrounding bone tissue to become permanent parts of your jaw. The result is a treatment that replaces a tooth’s roots as well as its crowns, all without any slipping or falling. Dental implants are thus more lifelike than alternative options. Plus, all three of our well-trained dentists perform placement in-house; there’s no need for outside specialists.
