A dental bridge is a restoration meant to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. A crown is placed over each tooth adjacent to the gap, and a number of prosthetic teeth called pontics are suspended between them to fill in the empty space. This stops the other teeth from shifting out of place, and it allows you to enjoy a complete smile and a properly balanced bite even after losing a tooth.
Dentures make it possible to replace many teeth at once, even if an entire arch has been lost. The techniques for making dentures have been refined over the years, making them less bulky and more comfortable to wear. A full denture will sit on the gums, but if you get a partial denture that’s designed to replace a specific number of teeth, it will instead be held in place with a metal clasp that attaches it to your natural teeth.
Thanks to our partnership with local oral surgeons, we are able to help our patients enjoy the benefits of dental implants, the only type of tooth replacement that addresses the loss of the roots that hold natural teeth in place and keep the underlying jawbone healthy. It’s possible to use dental implants to replace any number of teeth so long as your jawbone is strong enough to support the posts and the rest of your mouth is healthy.
