Teeth Replacement Q & A
What are my teeth replacement options?
At Brookfield Family Dental Art, you’ll find the full range of teeth replacement solutions so you can pick the perfect one for your mouth and your smile goals. Dr. Hassan offers:
- Dental implants
- Partial dentures
- Complete dentures
What are dental implants?
Whether you’re missing one or multiple teeth, dental implants are an excellent way to get a full smile that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.
A dental implant roots into your jawbone just like the rest of your teeth. The process starts when Dr. Hassan places the implant, a metal post that will serve as the root for your replacement tooth or teeth, in your jaw. Once the area heals, Brookfield Family Dental Art affixes your replacement tooth or teeth to the implant. They create these teeth to fit seamlessly in your mouth and match perfectly with your surrounding teeth.
Dental implants are sturdy, long-lasting teeth replacements.
What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are ideal when you’re missing one or a few consecutive teeth. The replacement teeth you need are custom-created to fit in your mouth and match your smile. They’re affixed to a plastic base that’s colored pink to match your gums. You can remove your denture to clean and care for it, but it looks natural when in place. It also prevents your other teeth from shifting in your mouth, protecting your smile’s alignment.
What are complete dentures?
If you’re missing the full arch of your top or bottom teeth, a complete denture is a noninvasive way to replace them. You can get your dentures once your mouth has healed after tooth removal or you can choose immediate dentures. In that case, Dr. Hassan fits you with dentures right after your tooth removal. Once your mouth is fully healed and the gums and bones have stopped changing, she adjusts the denture to fit comfortably and securely in your mouth.
What are bridges?
Somewhere between dentures and implants, bridges offer you a fixed-in-place but nonsurgical teeth replacement option. Your replacement tooth or teeth is held on a bridge that Dr. Hassan cements in place. She can attach it to crowns that cover the neighboring teeth or attach the metal support structure of the bridge itself to the backs of your surrounding teeth.
