The most common way to replace a missing tooth is to use a dental bridge. This restoration is comprised of a pair of crowns that hold one or more missing teeth between them. By attaching the crowns to your remaining natural teeth, we can “bridge” the gap and restore your smile. Bridges can either be removable or fixed in place; it depends on each patient’s preference. Like single crowns, dental bridges can be customized to blend in with the smile.
When most or all of the teeth in your mouth are missing, dentures are typically your best solution. Full dentures are used to replace entire arches of teeth all at once while partial dentures are used to replace a smaller number of teeth throughout the mouth. Today’s dentures are not as bulky as the ones your parents and grandparents might have worn, and they can be custom designed to meet different patients’ unique dental needs.
We can work with local oral surgeons so that you can enjoy the benefits of dental implants, which are considered the modern “gold standard” for tooth replacement. Thanks to these sturdy titanium posts acting as new tooth roots, your smile will be much stronger and more stable than it would be otherwise, and you can prevent the bone loss that could lead to your facial features collapsing and making you look older.
