Tooth Replacement Options
Missing teeth can impede your ability to speak and chew properly. If you do not replace missing teeth quickly, the teeth around the empty space begin to shift. If shifting occurs, treatment becomes more complex.
For patients with missing teeth, we create full or partial dentures. Partial dentures include replacement teeth attached to a false gum as a base with metal framework. Full dentures replace all the upper or lower set of teeth. Dentures are removable appliances. In lieu of dentures, we can create a bridge to replace missing teeth and restore the integrity of your bite and smile. A bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, replaces missing teeth by joining replacements to adjacent teeth or dental implants. We can also insert dental implants to permanently replace a lost tooth. Unlike dentures, you cannot remove an implant, which greatly improves your ability to chew and speak.
Regardless of the replacements that you require, we will find the best and most comfortable solution. Call us today for a consultation.
