- Dental Bridges. Dental bridges help to restore missing teeth. They are attached on both sides of the missing space to the surrounding teeth. These teeth are called abutments. An artificial tooth is then placed in the missing area and fastened to the mouth for a secure and solid fit. They are an easy and pain-free procedure that allows you to quickly replace your missing tooth/teeth. Contact your dental office for more information on traditional bridges; these options might work best for your specific situation as well.
- Partial dentures. Partial dentures are another common option for restoring individual missing teeth. They are similar to a full denture set but don’t require a whole row of missing teeth to replace. They can be used to replace one, or several missing teeth yet may need to be replaced every so often.
- Implants and Implant Bridges. Dental implants and implant bridges are surgically installed to the jawbone for an even more secure fit. They are a permanent solution to missing teeth that don’t allow for tooth decay and help to further strengthen the jawbone.
With so many options, there is no longer a need to feel self-conscious over your missing teeth. Contact your dentist to see if you could benefit from dental bridges, partial dentures, or dental implants. Call Village Family Dentistry today to set up your next consultation today!
