If you are missing only one or two teeth from your smile, you can still get the care you need to replace these lost teeth without the need for dental implants through partial dentures. Partial dentures can be fixed or removable. Removable dentures work to repair your smile through the use of a dental prosthodontics that is then attached securely into your mouth through the use of intricate metal wires. Metal clips hold the false tooth or teeth in when you need them, and allow for easy removable for cleaning as directed by your local Bay Ridge general dentist. Prosthodontics can be crafted from a variety of materials at the patient’s choosing to create a natural appearance that will perfectly match the look of your smile.
Bridges are in fact simply another term for a fixed partial denture, called such for the method in which they work to correct the gaps in your smile caused by teeth lost either from injury or dental decay. These dental prosthodontics are secured for a lifetime into place by way of adhering themselves onto the adjacent teeth, in essence, bridging the gap to recreate your beautiful smile. Bridges can be made of various materials, just like removable dentures, though often porcelain is the most preferred material of choice at your local Bay Ridge general dentist. Porcelain can be made to match the color and shape of any tooth, and has the unique ability of resisting staining better than your teeth for a lasting and permanent solution to restore your smile.
