Options for Replacing Missing Teeth
A full denture is a removable dental prosthetic that is placed when all teeth have been extracted and the gum tissue has fully healed. Dentures help patients reclaim their ability to chew effectively and speak properly. In addition, they aid in preserving the natural and youthful contours of the face. Full dentures are carefully crafted using only the latest in prosthetic materials to ensure a natural, lifelike appearance and a comfortable fit. Dentures are often made together with dental implants to ensure a "snap on" tight fit.
Partial Dentures (RPD)
Removable partial dentures (RPD) are an option if a patient is missing teeth and is not a candidate for permanent tooth replacement. Partial dentures provide a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth and restore chewing function. These can also be combined with dental implants to improve the fit and chewing ability of the partial dentures.
Porcelain Dental Bridges
A dental bridge may be recommended if a person is missing one or more teeth. Gaps left behind by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into empty spaces. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and loss of additional teeth.
When a tooth is lost due to injury, decay, or gum disease, the bone tissue in the jaw begins to deteriorate over time. This is because the jawbone requires stimulation from tooth roots to stay healthy. With dental implants, we can replace not only the visible portions of missing teeth but also their roots. Patients with dental implants can once again eat their favorite foods, speak with confidence, and share their smiles.
