You may be a good candidate for dental implants, a dental bridge or a tooth bridge to restore your smile if you have loose or missing teeth.

Removable Partials

For the patient who is missing teeth, but would prefer not to have an implant bridge, a partial denture is an alternative to consider. A removable partial is an appliance held in place by your existing teeth and gums and with a pink or gum colored plastic and metal structure that connects them. Partial dentures look like your natural teeth and are comprised of strong and comfortable material. A partial fills in the space created by missing teeth and makes your smile complete.  Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called attachments. Precision attachments are generally more pleasing in appearance than metal clasps and they are nearly invisible. Read More »

Complete Dentures

Due to tooth decay and loss that can happen with age, complete dentures may be necessary. Complete dentures are removable prosthetics for missing teeth that are custom made out of an acrylic resin. Dentures are used to replace teeth where there are no teeth remaining. Implants can be put in place to anchor a complete set of dentures. Dentures help give you the ability to properly chew your food which is a difficult task when teeth are missing. They may also improve speech and help prevent a sagging face by providing support for your lips and cheeks. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and give you back your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance, your health and even how you feel about yourself. Read More »
