Athens, GA Dentures, Partials, and Bridgework
Missing teeth not only compromise your image, they also negatively affect chewing, diet, speech, and self-esteem. Why live with missing teeth when cosmetic dentist Dr. Patrick can return your smile to full function with bridgework, dentures, or partials?
A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth in a row. Esthetic clasps hold the prosthetic appliance in place on abutment crowns. Meanwhile, a full or partial denture replaces many missing teeth. More specifically, a full denture replaces all teeth on the top or bottom gum, whereas a partial denture fits much like a puzzle piece, replacing staggered teeth on the upper or lower jaw. These prosthetics require some special care, but returned quality of life makes the cleaning and adhesive routine more than worth it!
For prosthetic teeth anchored to the jawbone, ask Dr. Patrick about dental implants. Call our Athens dental office today for your private consultation in our Athens, GA dental office.
