Dental bridges are composed of two different parts, dental crowns and free-standing replacement teeth called pontics. The crowns are fused to anywhere from one to three pontics and anchored to the natural teeth on either side of a gap, effectively filling in the space. With proper maintenance, dental bridges can last for 10 or more years.
Full and partial dentures can restore several or all missing teeth along an arch. Full dentures are comprised of gum-colored acrylic bases that hold natural-looking replacement teeth within the mouth once situated onto the gums. Partial dentures are held in place with strategically designed bases that fit between the existing teeth to fill gaps throughout the arch. Each of these prosthetics is specially designed to mirror the appearance of natural-looking teeth.
Dental implants combine the benefits of traditional restorations with modern technology and techniques. To replace the root structure of missing teeth, we’ll secure titanium dental implants below the gumline and into the jawbone. These will hold restorations like dental crowns, bridges, and dentures in place without needing to compromise the health of natural teeth. Because implants restore the entire tooth structure, they offer several unique advantages that set them apart from traditional restorative procedures.
