If you have one or more missing teeth in a row, a dental bridge can do exactly what its name indicates—bridge the space. Bridges utilize crowns on adjacent teeth to the missing tooth or teeth. The crowns hold the false tooth/teeth, called the pontics, in place. The bridge is secured with dental cement which allows you to regain the ability to chew, speak and smile without worry. Bridges supported by implants are also a great option that we can provide.
Partials and Dentures
Whether you are missing just a few teeth or all your upper or lower teeth, we can make you a custom-made denture or partial denture. There are several materials that can be used to make your partial denture. We will make sure your custom denture or partial denture is fitted properly and obtain your approval before the finished product is delivered. We also offer implant supported dentures. Dr. Nase has experience in making Locator, Conus and Hybrid implant supported dentures.
Dental implants have truly been revolutionary for the world of dentistry as they enable dentists to literally replace an entire tooth from the root up. They can be used to replace one tooth through a crown, multiple teeth through a bridge, or can support a denture for those with no teeth. When fully implanted, dental implants can look and feel like natural teeth. Implants are placed by an oral surgeon or periodontist (gum doctor). Dr. Nase and Dr. Rosales will then restore the implant with a crown, bridge or implant denture.
