Bridges & Dentures
If you are missing a tooth or are in need of an extraction, a bridge may be a great option for you to “bridge” the gap left from the missing tooth. A bridge is a series of dental crowns that will be specifically designed and fabricated to match your existing smile and fill the space left by the missing tooth. A crown will be placed over each of the adjacent healthy teeth in order to hold the crown in the empty space in place. The result is a “bridge” of three or more crowns that will look, feel and function almost exactly as your natural teeth. This bridge will also help prevent your remaining teeth from shifting into the empty space left by the missing tooth.
Dentures and Partials
If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, a complete denture can replace your missing teeth and give you back your smile. Regardless of whether you have suffered from periodontal disease, tooth decay or even an injury or trauma, replacing your missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. A denture will give your mouth and jaw the structure it needs to keep your face looking healthy and natural. Your teeth and gums keep your facial muscles in place. Without dentures, these muscles start to sag and typically make a person appear older.
Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than metal clasps and they are nearly invisible. At Parsell Family Dentistry, we believe that it is important to save your natural teeth whenever possible. A partial denture will allow Dr. Parsell to replace the missing teeth while maintaining as much of your natural smile as possible.
