Patients who are faced with tooth loss have a number of solutions available to them through a family dentist. At Northern Plaza Dental Care, we offer three primary options for individuals looking to replace their natural teeth including dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. Each of them has their own benefits, though there is no “one size fits all” solution for everyone. Working with a quality dentist is the best way to determine which restoration is most appropriate for one’s specific and unique needs.
Dentures come in two varieties: full and partial dentures. The full dentures are used when the entire dental arch must be replaced. They are made of acrylic and include false teeth and gums. Partial dentures are used when patients must replace a single tooth or just a few of them along the dental arch. These are made with the metal framework so they can snap into the dental arch using the existing teeth for support. Both types of dentures are made of high-quality materials and look natural within the smile.
Patients may also consider dental bridges if they want something more permanent. Dental bridges are made of crowns and false teeth called pontics. They can replace one or several teeth in a row. The bridges use crowns on each end to support the bridge and hold it in place. The false tooth sets in place of where the previous tooth used to be.
The gold standard in tooth replacement is that of dental implants. These titanium posts are placed into the bone of the jaw and are restored over the abutment with a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Our patients find this to be the strongest, most durable option for them if they are viable candidates.
