Are you missing one or more teeth that used to appear consecutively in your smile? Dental bridges can not only replace your teeth and make your smile sturdy again but also esthetically-pleasing. The reason this tooth replacement is referred to as a bridge is that it literally fills the empty gap left behind in your mouth and is supported by neighboring teeth and crowns that fit over them. Bridges can also be customized to fit with dental implants. Addison Family Dentistry often encourages patients to choose implants because of their added health and esthetic benefits. We also won’t need to modify existing tooth enamel to place a bridge if you use dental implants.
Rebuilding dental structure can be done in many ways, but dentures are often the first option that comes to mind. Not only are today’s dentures far more attractive than previous iterations, but more durable and longer-lasting. Our team will make sure to provide many customization options for your denture, ensuring an ideal fit for every patient. It doesn’t matter if you are missing a handful of teeth or all the teeth in your top or bottom arch. We always consider the combination of dental implants and dentures when possible, as they offer better stability and added permanence compared to stand-alone dentures.
When it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants are the clear leader in terms of longevity, function, and appearance. Their structure is designed to replace the entire tooth, including the root portion as well as the crown that makes up your smile. This makes sure that the bone inside of your jaw is regularly stimulated, which reduces deterioration. In almost every way, dental implants mimic teeth, from the feel to the functions to the esthetic appeal.
