This type of dental prosthetic is designed to literally bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth in a row. The appropriate number of artificial teeth are attached to crowns on either side, which are placed over the remaining teeth next to the gap in your smile. Not only do dental bridges complete your grin, but they also prevent the other teeth from drifting out of alignment – a very real risk after tooth loss.
Dentures & Partials
If you’re missing multiple teeth or even all of them, then dentures can be a simple and effective way to replace all of them at once. A full denture consists of an entire row of prosthetic teeth on a pink acrylic base that rests on the gums. Partials dentures, on the other hand (also known as partials), contain a set number and arrangement of replacement teeth that attach to your natural teeth via a metal frame, filling in the gaps effortlessly.
Considered the premier form of tooth replacement, dental implants last longer and feel more lifelike than any other option. That’s because they bring back the roots of the teeth that are embedded in the jawbone. After an oral surgeon has placed the implant posts in your jaw, Dr. Peters can attach a customized crown, bridge, or denture on top to complete the look and feel of your smile.
