When there’s just a single gap in the smile, a dental bridge is often all you need to take care of it. This type of restoration is made up of two crowns and at least one prosthetic tooth; the crowns are attached to natural teeth and the prosthetics between them fill the empty space. A bridge can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row as long as the teeth adjacent to the gap are still healthy enough to support the crowns.
We can use dentures to help you replace many teeth at once. A partial denture can fill in gaps spread throughout your mouth, and a full denture can replace the entire arch. Today’s dentures are smaller and sleeker than past prosthetics, making them more comfortable and helping them appear more natural in the mouth. If you choose dentures to replace your teeth, you need to remember to take them out of your mouth at night to give your gums a chance to rest.
Dental implants offer a truly complete solution for missing teeth, being able to account for the missing root as well as the crown. This makes them stronger than traditional restorations, allowing you to eat virtually anything. They also look and feel natural, and they can actively contribute to a strong, healthy jawbone. Our in-house periodontist can place implants to replace any number of teeth; we can use them to fill in single gaps as well as entire rows.
