Fixed Partial Denture (“Bridge”)
Commonly called a “bridge”, a fixed partial denture can be used to replace a missing tooth by suspending a false tooth between two crowns. Metal, ceramics or a combination of the two may be used to restore the teeth. Dr. Minton can help you choose the appropriate material based on the location in the mouth, esthetic needs and tooth condition.
Implant Supported Fixed Partial Denture (“Bridge”)
An implant supported fixed partial denture or “bridge” can be used to fill in the space of multiple adjacent missing teeth. Metal, ceramics or a combination of the two may be used to restore the teeth. Dr. Minton can help you choose the appropriate material based on the location in the mouth and esthetic needs. There are different types of connections that can be used, and Dr. Minton can determine which style would be best for you.
Removable Partial Denture
Partial dentures offer an economical replacement of teeth and tissues lost after teeth have been extracted. Partial dentures involve acrylic teeth and pink base. They are retained with metal clasps around your existing teeth. In some cases, implants can be used to help reduce the need for the metal clasps, and Dr. Minton can help you determine if this is an option based on your anatomy and denture design.
Dentures offer an economical replacement of the teeth and soft tissues when teeth are lost. They can be used to gain fullness of the upper and lower lips. Dr. Minton likes to get a little artistic with dentures and enjoys customizing them for you.
Implant Supported Fixed Complete Denture
Fixed Complete Dentures are a wonderful alternative to removable dentures. The fixed complete dentures are permanently attached and can only be removed by your dentist. They are rock solid and can be made of either denture acrylic or ceramics for improved resistance to staining.
