Teeth rely on their “neighbors” to stay securely in place.
No two smiles are alike. Your smile is as unique as your signature, your fingerprints, and your personality. So you deserve a unique approach to resolve your issues with missing teeth. Dr. Yon Elejabarrieta of Artistic Smiles in Miami FL understands this. He delivers customized care tailored to the needs of each patient.
The Goal: A Complete Smile
A complete smile is important for many reasons. Teeth rely on their “neighbors” to stay securely in place. When teeth are missing, surrounding teeth can drift. This may cause problems with chewing and negatively impact jaw joint function. Evidence shows that if a missing tooth isn’t replaced, adjacent teeth will be lost over time. And – let’s face it – an incomplete smile isn’t as attractive as full rows of strong, healthy teeth.
Tooth Replacement Solutions
Miami FL dentist Dr. Yon offers customized solutions to replace missing teeth. He may recommend a bridge, partial denture, or full denture, depending on what’s best for your smile.
Bridge: A bridge replaces one or missing teeth in a row. The teeth that border the gap are reinforced with crowns (or dental implants). Then, the bridge is permanently affixed to these “anchor” teeth for long-lasting stability.
Partial: A partial denture replaces missing teeth scattered throughout a row of teeth. Unobtrusive clasps hold the partial in place. A partial denture is a removable prosthetic.
Full Denture: A full denture replaces an entire row of teeth. Man-made teeth set in a natural looking base restore the look and feel of your natural smile. Dentures can be held in place with natural suction, adhesive paste, or dental implants.
