Dental bridges can replace anywhere from one to four missing teeth in a row. They’re comprised of two dental crowns that are fused to either side of replacement teeth called pontics. The crowns are attached to the natural teeth to anchor the pontics in place, revealing a complete and functional arch of pearly whites.
Full and partial dentures are able to restore an entire arch or several missing teeth across an arch, improving your mouth’s functionality and appearance. Partial dentures have a metal base that’s strategically designed to fit like a puzzle piece between your existing teeth to secure the prosthetics, while full dentures have a gum-colored acrylic base that utilizes suction to stay atop the gumline. Both options are conveniently removable and easy to clean.
For patients looking for a more permanent and durable way to replace their teeth, we usually recommend dental implants. This utilizes titanium posts that we surgically place below the gumline to replace the missing root structure of teeth to provide a stable and unwavering base to restorations. It can be custom-tailored to meet your unique tooth loss situation with the ability to restore one, several, or all teeth.
