These appliances are very similar in appearance to natural teeth and can improve a smile or facial appearance. All types of dentures keep your facial muscles from collapsing which in turn improves your facial appearance.
A removable custom appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth. Replacing these missing teeth will keep remaining teeth from shifting, therefore preserving your existing smile and the health of your remaining dentition.
Denture Relines (Done the Same Day)
The longer dentures are worn the more your gums change underneath. This change may make a denture’s fit change causing them to become looser. Dentures should be professionally relined when needed as determined by your dentist.
Crown and Bridge
Crowns are also known as caps. They are made of porcelain with a semi-precious substructure. Crowns are placed on top of an existing natural tooth and are used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance due to advanced decay, root canal therapy or some other damage. A bridge is a custom made semi-permanent fixed (cannot be removed) appliance replacing one or more missing teeth. They are cemented to existing teeth or implants. Like crowns they are made of porcelain with a semi-precious substructure and look and feel like natural teeth.
A jaw disorder that is related to the temporo-mandibular joint, the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull, and allows you upper and lower jaw to open and close. The usual symptoms for this disorder are headaches, neck aches, a clicking or popping sound when opening and closing our mouth. Some treatment for TMD include, muscle relaxants, aspirin, or wearing a small plastic appliance in the mouth during sleep.
