A fixed dental bridge can close the gap if you are missing a few teeth in a row. Bridges are composed of a realistic-looking artificial tooth sandwiched between neighboring dental crowns capped over natural teeth or anchored to two dental crowns attached to dental implants. Many patients find that a water flosser is a helpful gadget to keep their bridge clean!
If you have one or more missing or damaged teeth, dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option that can fill the gaps in your smile. To qualify, a patient must have sufficient jawbone density and healthy gums. This is because dental implants consist of a titanium rod surgically implanted into the jawbone, then topped with a restoration after a period of healing. The rod acts as a replacement tooth root that fuses with the jawbone. The restoration can be a dental crown, bridge, or dentures. This depends on how many teeth are missing and what’s ideal for your particular situation. Dental implants look, feel, and are cared for like normal teeth.
Full or Partial Dentures
For those missing many or all of their teeth, dentures can be a great tooth replacement option. They are made of an acrylic base that resembles gums with realistic artificial teeth. While partial dentures are adhered to your remaining teeth with metal clips, full dentures can be attached with dental adhesive or dental implants. Removable dentures should be removed every night before you sleep and soaked in a cleaning solution.
