Dental implants are generally the most effective way to replace teeth. Whether a tooth is already missing or one needs to be replaced, dental implants provide a strong, long lasting, fully functioning option. An implant is made by inserting a metal anchor, or post, into the jaw. This anchor is then fitted with a perfect porcelain replacement of your tooth, leaving you with a beautiful, long lasting, and functional smile.
Dental Implants may seem like a major procedure, however with today's technology most patients feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. The benefits of dental implants are plentiful; the functionality, durability and appearance of today's dental implants are un-paralleled. A dental implant is in most cases even stronger than the existing teeth that patients have, which means less time worrying about your teeth and more time enjoying life.
An alternative to dental implants, bridges generally provide a more cost effective way to replace a tooth. A bridge is created by using two healthy teeth to support a false tooth, or pontic. The two healthy teeth are drilled and a single prosthetic is placed across the three teeth.
While there are a few options for replacing missing teeth, bridges are one of the most common methods. Not only is it cost-effective, but it also allows for the patient to live a normal life, brushing and flossing as usual, without thinking about their missing teeth. Dental bridges are a great option for those looking to replace teeth without breaking the bank!
Dentures are an effective way to replace your smile and allow you to get back to enjoying your life! Essentially artificial teeth and gums that attach to your gums. Dentures can be found in a few varieties, either full or partial. Full dentures replace all your teeth, where as partial dentures only replace a section of missing teeth. Each denture is custom fitted and designed to fit your mouth, so you never have to worry about excessive rubbing or incidental removal. Due to the wonderful relationship we have with local dental labs we offer the highest quality dentures available and have one of the fastest turnarounds in the industry.
Dentures are a cost-effective solution to replacing missing teeth, and will be suggested whenever patients are missing multiple teeth and are on a budget. Dentures are a great solution for those who are seeking to improve their appearance, as we only use the highest quality materials to give you the natural smile you desire. While they don’t offer the same rigidity and security as other options, they allow you to get back to eating your favorite foods and enjoying your life.
