Why Choose AV Dental Associates of Jersey City for Replacing Missing Teeth?
- In-House Dental Implant Placement
- Long-Lasting Bridges and Dentures
- Dental Insurance Welcome
A dental bridge is made out of two dental crowns and one or more prosthetic teeth called pontics. The crowns are attached to the teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile; the pontics fill in the space between them. Because the pontics are made out of tooth-colored materials, it will appear as though you never lost any teeth in the first place. Dental bridges are very durable, and with the right care, you can expect them to last over 10 years without any issues.
When you have multiple teeth that you need to replace at once, we may recommend a full or partial denture. Full dentures sit on the gums and bring back an entire arch of teeth; partial dentures are held in place with metal clasps and can be used to fill in multiple gaps. Both are made out of gum- and tooth-colored materials so that they will blend in with the rest of your mouth.
If you’re looking for replacement teeth that come as close as possible to looking and feeling like your natural ones, we will likely recommend dental implants. This type of tooth replacement restores both the crown and root portions of missing teeth, making it a much more comprehensive option than traditional bridges and dentures. If you schedule an implant consultation with us, we can help you determine whether dental implants are right for you.
When a patient is in need of a new tooth, dental implants are the clear top option for longevity, optimal function, and seamlessness. However, there has to be enough healthy bone to support the placement of a new “tooth root” that will anchor the crown securely into their smile. This is where bone grafting comes in! By transferring new bone material to the site in question and allowing it time to solidify, our team can optimize long-term success and create a stable, rejuvenated smile that’s sure to last.
