Using dental crowns and free-standing replacement teeth to construct a dental bridge, these prosthetics fill in the gaps left behind by consecutive missing teeth by attaching to healthy abutments on either side. Delivering improved function and aesthetics, dental bridges remain one of the most widely used, conservative treatment options for patients who prefer a less invasive form of tooth replacement.
For multiple missing teeth that are spread out among an arch, a partial denture can be used to fill in the area. Full dentures can replicate an entire set of teeth that may be missing from the upper or lower arch. As tried-and-true prosthetics that have been used for centuries, full and partial dentures share a similar make-up, complete with a gum-colored base made of acrylic and artificial teeth positioned on top of the base. The only difference is that partials contain a metal framework that attaches to healthy teeth, while full dentures use natural suction to stay in place.
Instead of replacing only the crowns of teeth, dental implants extend beneath the gumline to restore the roots. As titanium posts that fuse with the jawbone, they replicate the function of tooth roots, delivering stimulation to the bone to prevent resorption and facial sagging. Their permanent placement allows for greater longevity, stability, and improved function, meaning eating your favorite foods is possible because of the increased bite force and chewing power you will receive.
