To replace one or more consecutive missing teeth, a fixed dental bridge may be an effective option. Fixed bridges rely on dental crowns to support a replacement tooth or teeth. The dental crowns are fused to either side of the replacement teeth, and the entire prosthetic is attached to surrounding healthy teeth for support.
Partial and full dentures are used to restore the smile following advanced tooth loss. Partials fill the gaps in patients’ smiles when there are still some healthy teeth remaining and full dentures are used to replace the entire row of teeth. Partial and full dentures are crafted using a gum-colored base material to support numerous teeth in one tooth replacement prosthetic. Partials are held in place with metal clasps attached to the remaining teeth. Full dentures are formed to fit snugly against the gum line. The suction between the gum-colored base material and the soft tissue holds the denture in place.
For patients with missing teeth, Dr. Carmen can place and restore dental implants without outside referrals. He will see you through every phase of treatment, ensuring your comfort and closely monitoring your progress. Our sedation dentistry options ease anxiety and promote a relaxing dental experience.
A full-mouth reconstruction plan can incorporate any number of restorative, orthodontic, or cosmetic dentistry treatments. The goal is to fully repair a severely damaged or decayed smile to complete form, function, and aesthetic appearance.
