Dental bridges can be used to protect damaged teeth and restore their appearance, but they can also be used to replace a few missing teeth. Before the bridge for a missing tooth can be placed, the abutment teeth, or the teeth that are on either side of the gap, must be reshaped so the bridge can fit over them. Once the mouth is numbed and the abutment teeth are prepped, impressions will need to be taken so your custom dental bridge can be made specifically for your smile. A few weeks later, your temporary bridge will be removed, and your permanent bridge will be placed!
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are often used to replace more teeth than dental bridges. Partial dentures are made to replace one or more gaps in a patients’ smile and clip onto nearby teeth using small metal clasps. Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth or both arches and use a denture adhesive to remain stable. Both options are completely removable and should be removed, brushed with a soft-bristle toothbrush and denture cleaner, and placed in denture solution every night to keep them in good condition.
Which option is right for me?
If you are still unsure which tooth replacement option is right for your smile, our team is happy to offer personalized advice during your one-on-one consultation. There are many benefits that come with replacing missing teeth, such as maintaining your face shape, maintaining a healthy jawbone, preventing other teeth from being worn down, and preventing nearby teeth from shifting out of place. Dental bridges and dentures are both excellent tooth-replacement options that help restore oral health and confidence!CONTACT US!
