People may be missing teeth for a number of reasons – accident, extensive decay, accident, congenitally missing. These teeth should generally be replaced so that your bite is not adversely affected.
A “bridge” is naturally looking replacement for missing tooth (teeth) that is securely attached to adjacent supporting teeth. It can be made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or gold. A bridge restores your natural bite and smile.
If you are missing all of your teeth in one or both arches, they can be replaced with a denture to provide better chewing and restore the shape of your facial features. We also provide full dentures to comfortably replace the teeth of an entire jaw.
Some patients have had missing teeth for a long time and as a result the bone/ridge has resorbed (changed shape) and is no longer able to solidly support a denture. This problem can be over come with implant support.
We offer Miniature Dental Implants (MDI). Placing Miniature Dental Implants is fast, simple and painless procedure and results are immediate.
Increasingly, surgically implanted metal posts or dental “implants” are gaining in popularity as an effective means of replacing missing teeth. Implants act like an artificial root to which a crown is then attached to replace the missing tooth. The extremely high success rate and relative ease of placement are the prime reasons why more patients are seeking implants. They can be used to replace single or multiple teeth, or to support a denture.
We work closely with highly skilled surgeons who place the implants, and then we complete the procedure by placing a restoration or artificial teeth that are attached to the implant and shaped to match your existing teeth.
