If you’ve faced tooth loss for a while and want to rebuild your smile with the most reliable and lifelike treatment option available to you, All-on-4™ implant dentures may be an excellent option. For those affected by jawbone deterioration, instead of requiring a bone graft, we’ll secure the implants in the densest areas of the bone, providing them with the stability and support they need for a long lifespan. You’ll still be able to enjoy all of the benefits that you would with traditional implant dentures.
A fixed dental bridge is a reliable option if you want to fill in the gap in your smile because of a few missing teeth. These restorations consist of two dental crowns that sit atop healthy abutment teeth that act as anchors. The remaining artificial teeth (pontics) rest on top of the gums to fill in the space and improve your appearance. With a dental bridge, you can enjoy greater function and confidence.
If you are looking to restore your smile from the root up permanently, there is the option of choosing dental implants. Made out of titanium, these posts mimic the natural tooth roots, offering continuous stimulation to your jawbone. As a result, you are free to eat your favorite foods, enjoy maximum functionality, and have an improved appearance. We partner with local implant specialists to create longer-lasting smiles that allow you to embrace a better quality of life.
Partial and full dentures are tried-and-true solutions that have been restoring smiles for centuries. Using gum-colored acrylic for the bases and artificial teeth to fill in the gaps, these prosthetics offer a more conservative way to rebuild smiles, no matter how many teeth are missing. While partial dentures use metal clips to attach to natural teeth to stay in place, full dentures use only your natural suction and denture adhesive.
Implant overdentures allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds from dental implants and traditional prosthetics. Unlike traditional dentures, these are anchored to the mouth using dental implants. However, they’re also removable, allowing you to easily clean and care for them, all while eating your favorite foods and smiling confidently. In addition, the implants prevent jawbone deterioration over time, preserving your facial structure and continuing to support your restoration for decades to come.
