A dental bridge is one of the most traditional forms of tooth replacement. It is made out of two dental crowns and at least one artificial tooth called a pontic. The pontics are what will complete your smile; the crowns will hold the bridge in place by keeping them attached to your natural teeth. Like crowns, dental bridges can be made out of materials that closely resemble your natural teeth, and they can last well over a decade if you give them the right kind of care.
When you’ve lost multiple teeth, dentures are often the most cost-effective way to replace them all at once. A full denture that replaces an entire arch of teeth will sit directly on your gums, but a partial denture that fills in gaps throughout your mouth needs to be held in place with metal clasps. Both kinds are removable, so you’ll need to take them out of your mouth when it’s time to clean them. If your denture is ever damaged or doesn’t seem to fit properly, call us; we can offer relining and repairs as needed.
Dental implants are often seen as the most modern solution for replacing teeth. They don’t just fill in the space in your smile; they also act as new tooth roots that provide extra biting strength and keep the underlying jawbone healthy. And with the right care, dental implants can last for decades – far longer than other tooth replacements. Our team can determine whether or not you’re able to get implants if you schedule a consultation with us.
