When you need to replace a tooth that is in poor health, or one that is already missing, you may wonder just how much support your prosthetic will provide. At our Baxter, MN dentist’s office, we can provide a custom restoration that offers lasting support while staying in position. With a custom dental bridge, we can secure your appliance without the need for oral surgery. In addition to improving the way you look when you smile and speak, it will be stable enough to let you return to a natural, comfortable bite function!

What Can I Do To Permanently Restore My Smile If I Have A Missing Tooth?

Losing a tooth can take a toll on your confidence, it can make you less comfortable with your appearance, and it can negatively impact both your bite function and oral health. The good news is that the right restorative dental procedure can take on these different concerns. You can be especially happy to know that a permanent appliance can be put in place without the need for oral surgery, which means the process is less invasive than you may have imagined.

How A Dental Bridge Remains In Place

So how will a dental bridge stay in place when no oral surgery is provided? A pair of dental crowns is part of the appliance. Each is set on a tooth next to the gap in your smile. By using these restorations to support your pontic (the replacement tooth), we can keep it stable enough to remain in position even as you use it to bite and chew. To make sure that it fits properly, we provide custom restorations that are the right shape and size to stay secure and also look natural.

We Also Provide Dentures For Patients Affected By Significant Tooth Loss

Some patients need more than just help to replace a single absent tooth. We do provide dentures in addition to dental bridges, which helps those who need to do something about more significant losses. Both partial and full dentures are available. A full denture replaces every tooth in a row, while a partial is custom-made to fill different gaps that might be present. The partial is designed to let you keep your natural teeth while enjoying full coverage for those that are missing.
