Dental implants aren’t the only option for tooth replacements here with Dr. Jose Sanchez. Two of the most common treatments outside of implants are dentures and dental bridges, and many patients may not know the difference between all three of these. Take a look below as we lay out the pros and cons of each treatment, and discover what works for you.
Removable dentures are full or partial arch replacements that are constructed from an acrylic or plastic. They are secured in the mouth through adhesives or clips, and can easily cover areas with missing teeth.
A dental bridge is a sequence of three or more crowns that are fused together. The middle crown is what will fill the gap in your smile, whereas the adjacent crowns will be the support system. These adjacent crowns are fixed on the teeth next to the gap.
As we’ve stated on other pages, dental implants are individual, artificial teeth that are crafted to look like real teeth. They are placed directly into the jawbone, and do not need to be supported by other devices.
Dr. Sanchez and his team are ready to help you restore your smile to its original beauty. Contact us today at our Tehachapi office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sanchez. You’ll get the answers you need and be put on the right path of treatment for a complete smile.
