Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are commonly used to replace missing consecutive teeth along the top or lower arches. Crafted from two dental crowns and free-standing artificial teeth (pontics), it relies on healthy abutment teeth as anchors to help hold itself in place. Not only does a fixed dental bridge make it easy to complete daily oral functions like eating and speaking, but it also has a lifespan of 5-7 years, so you can be free to embrace life to the fullest.

Dentures

Similar to a fixed bridge is a partial denture. However, these can replace missing teeth not seated next to each other. Built with a gum-colored, acrylic base and metal framework, the artificial teeth are placed onto the base so that the partial fits like a puzzle piece, attaching to healthy teeth to complete your smile and improve tooth usage. Full dentures are made much in the same way except they do not have a metal framework. Instead, they only rest on top of the gums and use natural suction and denture adhesive to remain secure. No matter which prosthetic you need, these teeth will help you enjoy greater confidence all the time.

Dental Implants

Unlike its traditional counterparts, dental implants support custom restorations that help to create a fully restored smile. These titanium posts function like normal tooth roots when affixed to the jawbone. Delivering stimulation that other restorative tooth replacements cannot, dental implants create a sound structure that allows newly placed teeth to remain in position for 30+ years. Also, their versatility makes it possible to treat all types of tooth loss.
