If you need to replace a single missing tooth or several consecutive ones, then the remaining teeth at either end of the gap can support a prosthetic called a dental bridge. We bond a row of dental crowns together and place the ones at each end over the teeth next to the empty space in your smile. The crowns in the middle are then able to “bridge” the gap. Once in place, your bridge should preserve your ability to chew and smile confidently for about a decade on average.
For patients with more extensive tooth loss, the right denture can feel like a godsend. A partial denture can seamlessly fit behind your remaining teeth to complete the gaps, while a full denture rests on the gums to restore an entire arch of missing pearly whites. In either case, modern dentures are much more realistic and comfortable than the prosthetics your parents or grandparents may have worn.
Traditional dentures and dental bridges may look lifelike, but they don’t quite feel like the teeth you used to have. Dental implants solve this problem by replicating the roots of lost teeth with small titanium posts. These posts merge with your jawbone to not only prevent bone loss but also restore more chewing power than other solutions. Better yet, dental implants can easily last for 30 years or longer as long as you take good care of them!
