Recent advances allow us to completely replace missing or irreparably damaged teeth with state-of-the-art artificial implants. Once any remaining part of the tooth to be replaced is extracted, an aluminum alloy implant is anchored in the jawbone. Over a few weeks, the implant fuses with the jaw to become a permanent part of the mouth. The final step is to attach a replacement tooth that looks and feels completely natural and realistic. These implants are intended to last for decades, and they require no more upkeep than the original teeth.
Dentures are a time-honored strategy to replace missing teeth. There are a variety of types of dentures depending on the scope of tooth loss and the wishes of the patient. Removable partial dentures are available for patients who want to replace a few missing teeth on a single arch. Fixed partial dentures are also available. For patients missing most or all of their teeth, we also offer complete dentures for total replacement.
Porcelain dental crowns are the latest method of replacing a damaged tooth using a prosthetic attachment. Crowns are also made from a variety of metals, but these can lead to allergic reactions and are accompanied by a variety of possible health risks. A porcelain crown is shaped outside the mouth and then bonded in place, resulting in a realistic, functional, and durable replacement for a damaged tooth. With proper care, porcelain crowns are extremely long-lasting.
Inlays and onlays are alternatives for restoring damaged or decayed teeth that do not require a full dental crown. An inlay involves bonding material to the tooth to replace areas missing from damage or cavity extraction and to cover a part of the chewing surface. In cases involving more serious damage, onlays cover the entire chewing surface, including one or more of the tooth cusps. The final result is similar in both cases: a stronger, healthier, and more attractive new tooth.
A dental bridge consists of an artificial replacement tooth or teeth fused into place between two porcelain crowns. A fixed bridge cannot be removed from the mouth by the patient, but must be removed and adjusted by a dental professional. Bridges involve some elevated dental hygiene requirements, but they can improve bites, smiles, and speech patterns immensely.
