Replacing Missing Teeth with Bridges, Implants or Dentures
Your mouth is designed to have a full set of teeth. When you are missing one, several, or all of your teeth, it impacts your appearance and your health. On the appearance front, missing teeth make you look and feel older than you are. On the health side, that lack of teeth impedes speaking and chewing. It allows the teeth to shift about, affecting your bite. And it causes a loss of bone in your jaw.
At my dental clinic, I provide patients with a number of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures and bridges:
Whether you have one or many missing teeth, implants offer a permanent solution. With the procedure for implants, decayed or broken teeth are removed, and a specialist inserts tiny titanium screws into your gums. These screws serve as replacement tooth roots. As your teeth heal from surgery, the bone in your jaw fuses with the screws, providing you with a sturdy foundation for your replacement teeth.
As your family dentist, I work with you throughout the process, recommending a skilled implant specialist. This dentist puts in the screws and a small post that is used to attach the implant to a crown. When your mouth is healed, I place and attach the crowns. With this, you once again have a full set of beautiful teeth that feel and function just like your original teeth.
Today’s dentures are more durable, natural looking, and comfortable than ever before. Plus, these removable dental appliances are the more affordable option. Let me fit you with partial or full dentures for your upper and/or lower jaw. What’s key to comfort is fit, and I double and triple check to ensure your dentures feel right.
Made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
