Prosthetic Dentistry

What happens when a tooth can’t be saved? Luckily, with prosthetic dentistry, there are extensive replacement options available to patients, now more than ever before.


Bridges are natural-looking fixed dental appliances that can replace a small section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth, as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Patients will have to take special dental hygiene changes into consideration.

Dentures & Partials

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete or full dentures are made when all of your natural teeth are missing. Partial dentures are frequently a sound solution when several teeth are missing, but not all. 

Dental implants can often be used to help dentures fit more securely. This allows us to replace a larger section of missing teeth with some of the added stability of an implant and a decreased likelihood of having to compromise the tooth structure of any of the surrounding teeth for a partial to fit onto and negate the need for cumbersome adhesives that comes with traditional dentures.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can be one of the most predictable and long term tooth replacement options available. Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Dental implants can often be used to help secure dentures or partials. An implant is a small metal screw that is placed into the bone to replace the root structure of an individual tooth. A crown is secured to the top of this implant and all you see is a beautiful, natural-looking tooth. Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. Ask our doctors to evaluate you for this procedure.
