An estimated 40 million people in the nation are missing all of their teeth. Not only can having gaps in the smile make it harder to eat and speak, but it can also have a drastic impact on your loved one’s confidence. Our team at Disability Dental offers customized, natural-looking restorations that are made to fit their unique needs. If your family member is missing one, several, or all of their teeth, contact our office today to learn how we can help.
Is your loved one missing one or more consecutive teeth, leaving a gap in their smile? We offer dental bridges, which are prosthetics designed to literally bridge the space between their teeth to create an entire, functional arch. They’re typically crafted from porcelain or ceramic and are customized to match the surrounding teeth. By restoring their smile with a dental bridge, they’ll be able to not only improve their oral health by making it easier for them to brush and floss their teeth, but also boost their confidence.
A partial denture replaces multiple missing teeth on the upper or lower arch. The missing teeth do not have to be adjacent to one another, as in the case of a bridge. Instead, a partial can replace missing teeth by fitting into the gaps like a puzzle. Partials can be anchored with clasps that attach to natural teeth, or they may be anchored to dental implants inserted into the jawbone. Partials are removable appliances but may be fixed to dental implants upon request. Like a partial denture, a full denture fits on the upper or lower arch. However, a full denture replaces all teeth on an arch. Dentures may be attached to the gums with adhesive or anchored to dental implants. They are removable appliances, as well.
