Dentures

Dentures have been used for centuries to restore missing teeth. However, the ones available today are much more advanced than options even a decade ago. With new technology, dentures can be made to fit more comfortably, conforming to your natural mouth contours and shape. Issues with slipping and movement can be remedied through advanced options available with dentures.

Partial Denture

Is a removable dental prosthesis (AKA RPD) that is used to replace multiple missing teeth. If a patient is not a candidate for a fixed dental bridge, or a dental implant, then an RPD is an option. Generally, you will wear an RPD during the day in order to be able to eat comfortably and to be able to smile esthetically. At night, you remove the RPD to clean it and to give the tissues in the mouth a break from wearing the prosthesis.

Dental Bridge

Is used to bridge the gap between two healthy teeth where one or more teeth are missing. In most cases, a dental crown is placed on the healthy teeth on each side of the gap to support the bridge in between them. These teeth are known as anchor teeth or abutment teeth.
