What Are Your Options for Replacing Missing Teeth?

Here’s a look at the tooth replacement options we offer at Main Street Dental Smiles:

Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is ideal for replacing one or more adjacent missing teeth. It consists of a pontic, or artificial tooth, supported by crowns placed over natural teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap. Dental bridges are typically made of porcelain or ceramic. They are custom-created to match the color and texture of your tooth enamel, delivering incredibly natural results.

Dentures and Partials: Dentures are custom restorations designed to replace several or all your missing teeth. Removal dentures are held by suction or the facial muscles, while fixed restorations connect to adjacent teeth or dental implants. At Main Street Dental Smiles, we offer complete and partial dentures.

  • Complete Dentures (Immediate and Conventional): Complete or full dentures replace all your teeth in one or both arches. Immediate dentures are prepared before removing any remaining teeth and positioned right after extraction. However, the area will change in shape during healing, meaning that your dentures will need adjustments and relining. Conventional dentures, on the other hand, are created after healing, providing the best fit, function, and comfort.
  • Removable Partial Dentures: Partials are custom-made oral appliances used to replace missing teeth when some healthy, natural teeth remain. They consist of natural-looking prosthetic teeth attached to gum-colored acrylic or plastic bases. Partial dentures typically attach to natural, healthy teeth using metal clasps or precision attachments.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are today’s gold standard for replacing one, several, or all your missing teeth. These screw-shaped titanium posts replace natural tooth roots, preventing bone loss and providing an incredibly secure foundation for implant restorations made to look just like your natural teeth. At Main Street Dental Smiles, we offer single-tooth implants, implant bridges, implant-supported dentures, and all-on-4 implants.

  • Single Tooth Implants: A dental crown placed on a single implant is an excellent solution to replace a missing tooth, restoring its form, health, and function.
  • Implant Bridges: Unlike traditional bridges that rely on adjacent teeth for support, implant bridges are attached to dental implants on either side of the gap, providing exceptional stability, function, and aesthetics.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: These removable dentures snap onto dental implants placed strategically in your jaw, providing a secure and stable tooth restoration solution.
  • All-on-four Implant Dentures: All-on-four implants combine the benefits of dental implants with denture technology, delivering superior restorations that rely on four implants for support. Studies show a close to 100 percent success rate for all-on-four implant dentures!
