Dental bridges use the strength of the remaining teeth to replace one to three missing ones in a row. Crowns are placed over the teeth on either side of the space, and these provide support for additional dental crowns in the middle. Bridges not only restore the bite and smile, but they also prevent the rest of the teeth from shifting out of place.
The right denture can be life-changing for a patient missing several teeth. You can get a partial denture that will fit among your remaining teeth like a puzzle piece or a full denture that can bring back an entire row at once. Patients also have the choice of traditional removable dentures or implant-retained prosthetics.
Right now, dental implants are the only treatment that restores an entire tooth from root to crown. A small titanium post placed into the jawbone is used to support a crown, bridge, or denture. They are the closest thing to real teeth when it comes to aesthetics, strength, and durability. With minimal care, they can easily last for 30 years or more.
