This treatment gets its name from the fact that it literally “bridges” the gap created by missing teeth. The dental crowns at either end of the prosthetic are placed onto the remaining natural teeth next to the gap. One or more artificial teeth are suspended between these crowns, seamlessly filling the empty space. If you’re missing three or more consecutive teeth, then your bridge can be anchored onto dental implants for extra stability and strength.
Modern dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking than the bulky prosthetics your parents or grandparents might have worn. A full denture brings back an entire arch of teeth, while a partial denture fits between your remaining teeth to complete your grin. Unlike other tooth replacements, dentures are removable, which can help you thoroughly clean them. That said, dentures can also be secured onto dental implants for greater chewing power.
For a permanent tooth replacement, we may recommend dental implants. These small cylinders are meant to recreate the roots of your teeth – something that bridges and dentures alone cannot do. As a result, dental implants feel and function like real teeth.
