Whether it is one missing tooth or multiple consecutive teeth that are missing, our team can recommend a customized dental bridge. Consisting of two dental crowns that exist on either side of the gap, customized pontics (artificial teeth) rest on top of the gums but are attached to the two artificial dental crowns. With proper care, these prosthetics can last 10-15 years, but you’ll be required to maintain regular dental checkups to ensure that your bridge looks good and is holding up well in its current location.
Dentures are a tried-and-true prosthetic that dentists have relied on for centuries. Designed to restore smiles no matter the number of teeth that are missing, full and partial dentures are reliable and highly effective. Made out of gum-colored acrylic to match the natural shade of soft oral tissues, artificial teeth are placed appropriately along the base to complete an upper or lower arch. And while partial dentures use metal clasps that attach to natural teeth to remain in place, full dentures only use your natural suction and a bit of denture adhesive to remain strong.
Known to be far superior to other tooth replacement solutions, dental implants are titanium posts that mimic the natural structure of tooth roots. Fusing with the bone over several months, these permanent prosthetics can last a lifetime with the help of regular and proper maintenance. Not to mention, they help you to regain much of your bite pressure and oral functionality, creating a more positive and worthwhile smile investment.
