When you're missing some of the teeth in the front of your mouth, Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist wants you to know that there is a solution. Crowns are a great option regardless of whether you've suffered trauma, you’ve had to have these teeth removed for medical reasons, or you’re looking to improve on your teeth cosmetically.

The dental appliance that’s known as a “bridge” got its name because it bridges the gap between your missing teeth. In between your healthy teeth (a.k.a. abutment teeth) new prosthetic (a.k.a. pontic) teeth are anchored. These pontics are typically composed of ceramic, but sometimes alloys, porcelain, gold, or a combination of materials is used to create a completely functional tooth.

These dentures are a removable device that's used to replace your missing teeth. They’re made from either porcelain or acrylic then held together with an acrylic base. Dentures are built to rest on your gum tissue. They do have some suction that will help hold them in place. If you still require additional help holding your dentures in place, there’s denture adhesive available.

Removable Partial Dentures
Typically, removable partial dentures consist of replacement teeth that are attached to a plastic base that’s gum-colored. They have a metal frame and clasps so they can connect to the nearby teeth. Sometimes, other types of connectors that are more natural looking are used. Sometimes you’ll also need to have crowns placed on your other nearby teeth to help make your removable partial denture fit better.

Tooth decay, also known as dental caries, is caused by the acid-producing bacteria found in plaque. These acids eat away at the enamel (the outer-most layer of a tooth), leading to the formation of cavities. If we diagnose you with a cavity during your routine checkup, we will likely treat the tooth with a dental filling. Fillings can also be used to repair cracked, broken, or worn down teeth, specifically with the use of composite resin. Composite resin is a soft mixture of glass or quartz filler that is color matched to the existing shade of your enamel.

Night Guards/Occlusal Guards
The terms "mouthguard" and "night guard" refer to the same basic appliance, a plastic covering that is worn over the teeth for protection. There are three major types of mouthguards: stock protectors, boil and bite protectors, and custom-fit protectors. The first two options are store-bought and inexpensive. However, they are usually bulky, uncomfortable, and less effective than the custom-fit alternative. At Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, we specialize in custom-fit mouthguards because we believe they are the ideal solution, whether you need one for physical activities or to combat bruxism.
