Dentures are a removable replacement for one or more missing teeth, used to restore both function and aesthetics. Dentures are custom-fabricated to fit your mouth and match the appearance of your natural teeth. The fit of your dentures may be adjusted as needed to ensure comfort and proper function.
While complete dentures replace the full upper or lower set of teeth, partial dentures are used to replace one or more teeth when some natural teeth remain. Partial dentures can prevent the teeth from shifting into the space left by missing teeth.
Dentures require daily maintenance and cleaning with a soft bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive cleanser, as well as maintenance of your regular visits to Parkview Family Dentures. While removable dentures are strong and durable, they will typically need replacement every 5-10 years. Ask Dr. Rusch or Dr. Rich to evaluate whether your dentures should be refit or replaced.
Over time, the teeth may begin to weaken, leaving them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth.
Dental crowns can also:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking
- Hold a cracked tooth together
- Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
- Cover a severely discolored tooth
- Restore a broken or severely worn tooth
Dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.
Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your dental crown last many years.
A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Tooth replacement helps avoid shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur, making it difficult to properly eat, speak, and more. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.
A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. We use strong and durable materials for your restoration. With appropriate at-home and professional care, your dental bridge may last for years.
Harmful bacteria on teeth can lead to decay. Untreated decay may cause further oral health complications, including pain or infection. Composite fillings are a safe, effective solution to help preserve your teeth.
Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored, composite resin. This resin is strong, durable, and aesthetic. Your dentist will gently remove decayed tissue and place your filling to help prevent further damage.
