Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge, denture, or dental implant will help enhance your speech and restore your ability to chew your favorite foods. At Dental Care of Madison, we create aesthetic restorations to deliver natural-looking smiles. Leaving a gap in your smile can lead to complications. The remaining teeth can potentially shift out of position, leading to crooked teeth and problems with the bite. A dental bridge, partial denture, or dental implant will help keep the remaining teeth from moving out of alignment, safeguarding your oral health. Your restoration will also distribute the forces of your bite more evenly, lowering the risk of gum disease, tooth wear, and TMJ discomfort.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed restoration designed to replace one or more adjacent teeth. It effectively "bridges" the gap in your smile, providing seamless results. We anchor your bridge to dental crowns placed on teeth on either side of the space. Your new replacement tooth or teeth will restore your smile's health, function, and beautifully natural appearance.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures offer a removable, time-tested tooth replacement solution. Today's dentures are much sleeker, lighter, more comfortable, more functional, and more natural-looking than those of the past. At Dental Care of Madison, we offer complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures restore your smile if you are missing all your teeth in one or both jaws, while partial dentures are ideal when some natural teeth remain.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are screw-like titanium posts designed to replace missing tooth roots. They fuse to the jawbone during healing, providing a secure foundation to support aesthetic restorations carefully crafted to match your smile.At Dental Care of Madison, we offer a range of implant restoration options, including the following:

    1. Single Implants: A dental crown placed on an implant can restore your smile's health and function, offering results comparable to natural, healthy teeth.

    2. Implant-Supported Bridges: Unlike traditional dental bridges that rely on crowns placed on natural teeth for support, implant-supported bridges are attached to dental implants for enhanced comfort and function.

    3. Implant-Supported Dentures: Also known as overdentures, implant-supported dentures are secured to several implants that are strategically placed in the jaw, providing superior comfort, stability, and aesthetics.

    4. All-on-4 Implants: The innovative restorations rely on as few as four implants to support an entire arch of teeth and can sometimes take only one appointment to place. All-on-4 implants are the closest you can get to natural, healthy teeth!
