As long as the teeth around a gap are healthy, we can fill the empty space with a dental bridge. One or more prosthetic teeth are suspended between two dental crowns that rest on the natural teeth. Bridges can perform all the everyday functions of real teeth, and they’re made from lifelike ceramic so that most people won’t even be able to tell that you have a prosthetic. They also play an important role in preventing your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
Bridges are useful for replacing a few teeth in a row, but for more extensive cases of tooth loss, dentures are usually the prosthetic of choice. A full denture can replace an entire arch of teeth at once, letting you enjoy meals that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to chew at all. You can also get a partial denture if there are multiple empty spaces in your mouth but still plenty of healthy teeth remaining.
To give your new teeth some added stability, crowns, bridges, and dentures can be supported by small metal posts called dental implants. These new (simulated) roots join with the bone, stimulating it and preventing the jaw from deteriorating; they can also give your prosthetic teeth up to 70% of the chewing power of natural teeth (removable prosthetics usually restore only 20%). Our practice will refer you to our team of local specialists for implant placement; afterwards, you’ll come back to our office to receive your prosthetic tooth or teeth.
