Implants, Crowns, Bridges, Veneers, Full Dentures, Partial Dentures in Madison, AL
At APEX Dental, we offer several options such as implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, full dentures, and partial dentures at our Madison office. Dental implants have become the preferred method for replacing missing teeth, so many prosthodontic procedures today are done with implants as the support instead of the natural teeth or gums. You need prosthodontics if:
- You are missing one or more teeth.
- You are interested in dental implants.
- You wear dentures or removable partial dentures.
- You want to improve the esthetics of your smile.
Bridges and Crowns
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.
What are the benefits of dental bridges?
- Restore your smile
- Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position
Dental implants are versatile, and they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Out of all tooth replacement options, implants have the highest success rate, and can last a lifetime if patients care for them properly. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, we offer several options for dental implants to fit a variety of needs at our Madison office.
At APEX Dental, we understand that you want your dentures to look natural and feel comfortable. We offer several styles of partials customized just for you.
Removable prosthodontics include complete, partial, immediate, and implant retained dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.
Over time, adjusting the denture may be necessary. As you age, your mouth naturally changes, which can affect the fit of the denture. Your bone and gum ridges can recede or shrink, resulting in a poorly fitting denture. If you need a repair, we do that, too.
