Tooth loss can be a difficult bridge to cross, but it is by no means a permanent condition. Our dentist at Dr. Phil's Family Dental Care PLLC can craft a set of replacements for you that can mimic your natural teeth and offer the comfort and satisfaction you have always enjoyed with your natural teeth.

Some of the best replacements we can offer include dental bridges or dentures. Whether you have lost one tooth, or are missing all of them, we can help you. Below are a few advantages of bridges and dentures:

Advantages of Bridges:

– Bridges can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Bridges are permanent fixtures in your mouth that can vastly improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth and even more so than dentures. They are not removable like dentures, which can tend to have the problem of falling out.

– Bridges can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Bridges also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

Advantages of Dentures:

– Dentures can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Dentures are removable fixtures that can improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth. Since they are removable, they do not need to attach to other natural teeth as dental bridges do.

– Dentures can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Dentures also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

The choice between getting fixed or removable dental prostheses does not have to be made alone. Our dentist at Dr. Phil's Family Dental Care PLLC is here to help.
