Dentures & Bridges
If you’re missing teeth, come in and see us here at Your Total Dental & Orthodontics. Our practice provides personalized denture services and we can create one-of-a-kind dentures for you that feel great and look natural.
What They Are
Dentures are removable replacement teeth that come in two types: full and partial.
Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth are missing or have been removed. Conventional full dentures are placed on once the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate full dentures are placed on right after the teeth have been removed and may require recurring adjustments during the first couple of months of use.
Partial dentures consist of an acrylic (gum colored) base or metal frame with fake teeth attachments that fit in-between your natural teeth. This removable alternative to a bridge effectively fills in where permanent teeth are missing.
Are Dentures Right for You?
Dentures can be an excellent solution for restoring your smile. If you’re interested in learning more, please schedule an appointment. Our team is always available to answer any questions you might have and will help you determine the best treatment plans for your continual dental health.
A dental bridge provides an additional option for replacing missing teeth with natural-looking alternatives. Not only do bridges fill in gaps in your smile, but they also help preserve the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. There are a multitude of materials that we can use to craft your unique bridge, including gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these. It is then bonded to your surrounding teeth.
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone it is attached to. Thus, it is very important to keep your mouth healthy and your teeth and bones strong.
