Prosthodontic Services

Prosthodontics are used to replace missing teeth. The type of prosthodontic device can depend on many factors; the number of continuous teeth missing, the prognosis of abutment/anchor teeth and bone, the placement of remaining teeth in an arch and what your preference may be.

Fixed bridge – A fixed bridge is cemented to abutment teeth on either side of the space left by a missing tooth or teeth with a pontic, or false tooth filling the space between.

Partial denture – A removable appliance that has teeth attached to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures may be made with a metal frame that has been cast to your mouth or a more flexible type of acrylic material can be used.

Full denture – A removable appliance that is used if there are no remaining teeth in an arch. The gum shade and tooth shade are customized to you.
