Using today’s advanced dental procedures, the knowledgeable dental professionals at Huron Dental will work with you to restore one tooth, several teeth or provide you with a full set of custom-fitted dentures
The dentists at our Ann Arbor dental practice may suggest that you need a bridge to restore and enhance teeth that have been damaged, or to take the place of missing teeth.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap caused by one or more missing teeth, where one or more artificial teeth are cemented into place using the teeth on either side for support. Bridges are very durable and can last a lifetime with extra care and by practicing good oral hygiene. To learn more about dental bridges contact Huron Dental Center.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. While there are several types of dental implants available, the most widely accepted and successful is the osseointegrated implant, based on the fact that titanium can be successfully fused into bone. This forms a structural and functional connection between the living bone and the implant. A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge, or implant supported denture.
Individuals who are missing one or more teeth looking for a permanent replacement solution may opt to use an implant crown. An implant crown is a composite reproduction of the lost tooth that is placed over a dental implant or post. The implant crown replicates the original tooth in shape, size, strength and appearance. When the crown adheres in place, it will fully encase the entire visible portion of the dental implant. If you are considering a dental implant, Huron Dental Center can help you decide whether or not you need an implant crown.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and their surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available, including partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile!
If you have lost some or all of your teeth due to gum disease, decay or accidental impact, dentures can dramatically improve your smile. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Our Ann Arbor dentists may suggest full dentures or partial dentures, depending on how many natural teeth you have lost and the condition of your existing teeth.
