Replacement of Missing Teeth:Replacement of missing teeth can be accomplished by three different modes of treatment. They are:
Removable partial or complete dentures
Dental implants serve as the foundation for many types of tooth replacement. Implants can replace one tooth or several missing teeth with crowns or bridges that are fixed in place. For replacement of many teeth or all of the teeth, implants can support very secure removable dentures or fixed bridges if the conditions in the mouth allow it. Implants allow excellent esthetic and functional replacements of missing teeth.
Fixed bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements which help maintain facial structure, reduce stress on the jaw and fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth. These bridges are cemented on the existing teeth and do not come out.
Removable Partial Dentures:
Removable partial dentures replace teeth lost due to decay, periodontal disease or injury. They replace the missing teeth, utilizing the remaining teeth to support and secure the removable partial denture. Removable partial dentures are a functional, esthetic and cost-effective means of tooth replacement. They can be removed to clean the denture or the remaining natural teeth.
Complete dentures replace teeth when all upper and/or lower teeth are missing. They restore the function of eating, restore proper facial esthetics and help people talk properly. Lower dentures, though more difficult, can restore proper function and comfort. Dental implants stabilize the lower denture better!
Crowns are used to strengthen and improve the shape, size or color of teeth. They can support broken or weak teeth or those with large fillings; provide a smooth, strong, attractively contoured surface for stained, irregular or otherwise abnormal teeth; and aid in the implantation of bridges and other implants.
Porcelain Laminates (Veneers):
Porcelain veneers, or laminates, are very thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom-fit and bonded to the front sides of teeth to close gaps, cover stains and discolorations, and correct chipped or irregular teeth to give you a bright, even, attractive smile.
