A dental bridge is a type of prosthetic that uses the strength of the teeth next to the missing ones to replace them. Dental crowns are fitted over the teeth on either side of the gap, and these are bonded to additional crowns that literally “bridge” the middle. In addition to helping the smile look complete again, bridges enable patients to bite and chew like normal, plus they prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of place.
Despite being hundreds of years old, dentures are still one of the best ways to replace several missing teeth at once. Today’s prosthetics are custom-made using acrylic materials that recreate gum tissue and teeth down to the smallest detail, and they can be shaped to have a comfortable and secure fit patients can always rely on as well. We can provide partial dentures that complete the smile like the last piece of a puzzle or full dentures that bring back an entire row at once.
Right now, dental implants are the only treatment available that actually replaces every part of a missing tooth. A crown, bridge, or denture is held in place using a small titanium post that is positioned within the jawbone that acts like a prosthetic root. With implants, a patient is able to regain much more oral function and bite strength compared to traditional bridges and dentures, and even better, they have been shown to last for 30 years on average.
