If you have a gap in your grin left by one or more consecutive missing teeth, a dental bridge may be the perfect solution for you. These restorations are crafted from high-quality, natural-looking materials like ceramic and zirconia to allow them to blend in with the rest of your teeth. They are comprised of two components, free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics, and dental crowns that are adhered to either side of the pontics. The crowns are cemented onto the two existing teeth on either side of the gap in the smile, holding the bridge in place.
We can pair full or partial dentures with dental implants to create natural-looking and -feeling replacement teeth. Whether you are missing an entire row or several teeth along an arch, dentures can maintain the alignment of your existing teeth and improve your quality of life by making eating and speaking much easier. Plus, when paired with dental implants, you will not have to worry about your prosthetic slipping or shifting, as it will be attached to an unwavering support system.
Dental implants are small, screw-like titanium posts that Dr. Hunt can surgically place below the gumline and into the jawbone. Due to their biocompatibility, they are able to fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration, just like your natural tooth roots once were. This provides restorations like bridges, free-standing crowns, and dentures with exceptional strength, and helps stop jawbone deterioration that can happen with the bone is no longer being stimulated, like with traditional restorations.
