If you're missing one tooth or all of your teeth, a fixed bridge or implants may be the perfect thing for you. If you have a small dental bridge or partial dentures, implants will be a welcome alternative. Implants are an alternative to a fixed bridge. What is great about implants is that they will last a lifetime. The crown on top of the implant will last ten to fifteen years and may need to be replaced after that time. If there are any problems with either of them before those times, we will fix them for free.
Solution#2: Implant -supported Dentures:
You can have stronger, more secure dentures with a far greater bite, and not have to worry that your teeth will move around or fall out at the wrong moments. And all of this can be done in just 2 hours or less without Surgery, Drugs Or Prolonged Healing period!
This means that when you walk out of our office, you’ll actually have a denture that stays in place, won’t move around, pop up, rub or fly out of your mouth every time you sneeze or cough. There’s very little post-procedure pain, which we can take care of with a prescription anyway, and the cost to you is much less when compared to conventional implants! It’s simply amazing!
The greatest thing about these new dentures is that it allows you to have more confidence and prevents the fear of your dentures pulling up when you chew, or falling out of place when talking with others. In addition, this new procedure is faster, costs less than conventional and slower procedures, and requires no healing time.
We are one of the few dental practices in the area who offer this new procedure.
Fixed Bridge or Removable Partial Denture:
A missing tooth or teeth can be replaced by a fixed bridge or a removable partial denture. In a fixed bridge, the missing tooth is replaced by a false tooth which is held in place by being connected to crowns (or “caps”) on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.
Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as many as ten years or more.
If you have missing teeth and have good oral hygiene practices, discuss this procedure with us. If spaces are left unfilled, they may cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position. Additionally, spaces from missing teeth can cause your other teeth and your gums to become far more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.
