Replacing Missing Teeth

Dental Implants

Instead of getting false teeth, dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth. They are state-of-the-art and extremely effective. These small titanium posts are put into the jawbone where teeth are missing, and bind to the bone creating a foundation for artificial teeth. This creates a natural and functioning replacement for missing teeth. Missing teeth can be very harmful not only to your appearance but also to your dental health. Bone deterioration can occur when teeth are not promptly replaced. Dental implants can give you the confidence to eat, laugh, talk, and enjoy life without being embarrassed about not having a complete smile.

Implant Overdenture

Implant overdentures can be connected to dental implants in order to secure a full denture by creating a stable connection. Oftentimes, common complete dentures can decay quickly and become unstable, but implant overdentures help you avoid these effects. This provides a full denture without a bulky restoration.

Removable Partial Denture

The most effective temporary and economical tooth replacement is a removable partial denture. This appliance can range from taking the form of an elaborate system with clasps to a basic plastic piece with a clip. For the use this appliance, grooves and planes might have to be grounded into the surface of your natural teeth to create a foundation for the appliance to stay in while eating. The appliance itself is very comfortable, but an adjustment period is expected, since it feels unnatural to have a foreign object in your mouth. These appliances also require meticulous care. They must be removed and cleaned after eating, or they will begin to decay in their attachment places. Because of these drawbacks, removable partial dentures are not recommended as permanent treatment.

Fixed Bridges

Seemingly irreparable damage to teeth can often be replaced by fixed bridges. These appliances are made of three or more porcelain or porcelain fused on gold crowns that are connected to fill the gap where teeth once were. They are permanent and can solve many dental problems, recreating a functional smile and bite for many patients.
