Replacing your teeth
If you are missing one or more natural teeth, then you know how much this diminishes your chewing ability. What you may not realize is that missing teeth also affect your facial structure, increasing stress on remaining teeth and often giving your cheeks a sunken appearance.
Options to replace missing teeth include;
A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone. Once the implant is inserted in the jawbone, after an initial healing period, during which the implant is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial tooth. It is considered the best possible option to replace a missing tooth in the mouth.
We offer chrome cobalt (cast metal) partial dentures to replace missing teeth and help maintain function and aesthetics.
These are cast metal dentures generally considered to be the more permanent partial denture unlike plastic partial dentures are clipped to the natural teeth with clasps and most importantly incorporate rests on the teeth. Chrome Cobalt partial dentures are far superior to plastic partial dentures because they are thinner and the gums stay healthier because the biting force is shared between the gums and the remaining teeth. They are more comfortable to wear and last longer than plastic dentures.
Bridgework works like a series of connected crowns, replacing missing teeth by bridging the gap and using the surrounding teeth as abutments.
