Dental bridges are sturdy, customized prosthetics that are specifically designed to replace multiple teeth in a consecutive row – simply put, they “bridge” the gap. Traditionally, they are anchored in place with the help of dental crowns, which fit into place over natural teeth on either side. However, this method does require our team to minimize natural dental structure. Today, we strongly recommend implant-retained dental bridges as a healthier and more permanent alternative.
Dentures & Partials
Dentures have been around for hundreds of years, and today’s modern designs are still an affordable and functional way to rebuild several missing teeth all at once. Traditional full and partial dentures rest atop the gumline and are designed to be removed when sleeping or practicing oral hygiene. Implant-retained dentures are another option, which hold the prosthetic securely in place to avoid the risk of unexpected slipping and better support ongoing oral health to boot.
While every patient’s reconstructive needs are different, Dr. Lamond strongly recommends dental implants when possible as the best way to replace missing teeth for the long-term. Because implants replicate the entire tooth (including the root beneath the gum line), they provide the perfect blend of lasting durability and seamless aesthetic value. In fact, it’s very difficult to distinguish new, implant-retained “teeth” from original dental structure at all!
