Dental bridges are an excellent option for patients who are missing one or more consecutive teeth. The prosthetics are comprised of two dental crowns that are fused to free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. The crowns are attached to your natural teeth located on either side of the gap in your arch, holding the pontics in place and literally bridging the gap. With routine maintenance of brushing and flossing and visiting the dentist every six months, you can make the most out of your prosthetics, helping them last for up to 15 years.
If you’re missing several teeth along your arch or an entire row of teeth, our customized full or partial dentures may be the perfect tooth replacement solution for you. Our dentures are secured in place either by a metal base that is made to fit between your existing teeth (partials), or a gum-colored acrylic base designed to fit over your gums and utilize natural suction to stay in place (full dentures).

Dental implants utilize titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline to secure a dental crown, bridge, or denture in the mouth without having to alter or remove your natural teeth. The implant posts are able to replace the root structure of your missing teeth, unlike traditional restorative treatment options, allowing this restorative process to offer a wide array of unique benefits, including prevention of jawbone deterioration.
