If you’re missing several teeth in a row, implant supported dentures are a great option for restoring the missing space. With implant supported bridges, two implants or “metal roots” are placed into the jaw on each side of the implants so they look and function like natural teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
If you have dentures or are looking to get dentures, considering an implant supported denture is a great option. If you’ve felt frustrated with your dentures moving around, falling out or having difficulty eating with your dentures, an implant supported denture may be the perfect solution for you. An implant supported denture is when several implants are placed into the jaw, a period of healing is allowed, and then the denture is made to clip into the implants for maximum retention, support and stability.
Removable partial dentures are used to replace a section of missing teeth. Removable partial dentures have replacement teeth fixed to an acrylic base that will match your gum tissue. Removable partial dentures also will have clasps that will hook on to your remaining teeth. The partial denture can be easily taken out of tour mouth for cleaning. Partial dentures can improve esthetics and help with chewing function.
Fixed bridges are another great way to restore missing spaces in your mouth. A fixed bridge is attached to the adjacent teeth and cemented into place. Bridges can look, feel and function like natural teeth!
