The consequences of missing teeth are numerous: your speech and chewing function may be compromised, the teeth can shift and become crooked, there is higher risk for gum disease (periodontitis), just to name a few.
At Park Center Family Dentistry, we are able to provide numerous options for replacing missing teeth, including:
Sometimes called fixed partial dentures, bridges are used to replace missing teeth by using the surrounding teeth as supports. Bridges are bonded permanently to the surrounding teeth and can provide a predictable and durable replacement.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures boost confidence, reduce the risk of bone loss, improve function, and give patients their smiles back. Many patients who have lost most or all of their natural teeth can restore their smiles with our custom made full and partial dentures.
Dr. Tran is proud to provide start-to-finish dental implant services to his patients, including placement and restoration. A dental implant is an artificial root surgically anchored to the jawbone. Once your prosthetic tooth root bonds naturally with bone tissue to create a solid foundation, Dr. Tran can attach a crown to the implanted post. Dental implants are the tooth replacements that most closely imitate nature.
Dental implants can also be used to make full and partial dentures more stable in the mouth. If you’re having an issue with a loose denture, ask Dr. Tran about how implants might be able to help.
