Tooth loss is a serious issue for your oral health, but it is one that our practice is ready to address. We can make replacing missing teeth part of your full smile recovery—we offer different appliances that provide bite support as well as cosmetic improvements.
Tooth loss takes a serious toll on your oral health, and it can alter your smile in a significant way. The change in your bite can wear down remaining teeth and put stress on your jaw. You can also lose jawbone density and have more teeth loosen and become lost.
Fortunately, our office does work that restores your appearance and dental function after tooth loss. Dental prostheses are strong, and they can closely imitate healthy teeth to make you happy with your smile. Your options include restorations that are fixed in place permanently or are removable.
Dental bridges are custom restorations that include a pair of dental crowns and at least one pontic (replacement tooth). The crowns are capped to the teeth surrounding the gap in your smile to anchor your prosthesis and provide permanent restoration. The crowns and pontics match the color and texture of dental enamel to provide a lifelike appearance, and they are strong enough to absorb bite pressure.
Partial and Full Dentures
We offer partial and full dentures to address more significant tooth loss issues. Partial dentures are custom-made to replace several teeth that are not in the same area. A full denture will replace an entire row of teeth that have been lost.
Partial dentures remain in place with assistance from clasps set on the backs of teeth. Patients in need of dentures can learn about the advantages of an implant-held appliance that is permanently in place.
Our office provides attractive, durable, and comfortable restorations for dental implants. Dental implants are a man made root to replace a tooth that has been lost. We can help you find a specialist for the placement of the implant, then we place the crown, bridge or denture to give you back your strong and lovely smile.
