Dental bridges are able to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth by securing free-standing replacement teeth (called pontics) to dental crowns. The pontics are crafted to look lifelike next to your surrounding teeth, and the two natural teeth on either side of the gap in your mouth are prepared to support the crowns. Once these are secured, the dental bridge will be able to fill the gap in your arch, providing you with a complete smile for years to come.
Dr. Atluri offers custom-crafted full and partial dentures for patients who are missing either several teeth across an arch or all of their teeth. A full denture has a gum-colored acrylic base that’s specially designed to fit over the gums and utilize natural suction to stay in place, while a partial denture has a metal or acrylic base that’s designed to fit like a puzzle piece between existing teeth. Both types of dentures feature natural-looking replacement teeth that can be crafted from porcelain or ceramic.
If you’re looking to replace one or multiple teeth across an arch and would like a stronger alternative to a dental bridge that doesn’t require you to alter your natural teeth, dental implants may be a great option for you! Instead, the prosthetic will be attached to one or two dental implants that are secured below the gumline and into the jawbone. This will provide your crown or bridge with a strong and stable foundation to be attached to.
