Losing a tooth doesn’t just make talking and chewing more difficult; it also takes a toll on your self-confidence, making it hard to smile or laugh during even normal social interactions. Working around these gaps is often more trouble than it’s worth; instead, let Dr. Ponnaganti fill in the empty space with a personalized tooth replacement so that you can show the world a full, healthy smile again. Whether you lost a tooth recently or have reason to expect tooth loss in the future, you can call us to schedule a consultation.
The name “dental bridge” refers to the method that this particular restoration uses to fill the empty space in your grin. One or more prosthetic teeth will be placed between a pair of crowns, which will be anchored in place to your natural teeth – thus “bridging” the gap. You can depend on a dental bridge to stay firmly in place at all times. It will be made out of ceramic, meaning it will look just like your natural teeth.
No matter how many teeth you’ve lost, it’s possible to completely restore your smile! There are two kinds of dentures you can get: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures can be used to bring back an entire arch of teeth while partial dentures are used to fill in any number of gaps throughout your mouth. In most cases, full dentures will rest directly on your gums while partial dentures are held in place via a metal clasp.
Most tooth replacements only restore the crown of a missing tooth – that is, the part that most people see. Only dental implants can replace the root as well. Your new restoration will be placed on a titanium post that has fused with your jawbone, allowing it to stay in place for decades. And since you can have the entire procedure completed here at happy smiles, you won’t have to worry about making time to see a separate specialist across town.
