Bridges & Partials
Missing teeth pose a variety of problems in your mouth initiating a chain reaction which negatively impact other healthy teeth. The problems include shifting teeth, loss of jawbone, difficulty chewing, grinding and clenching, painful jaw joints (TMJ), and the ability to clean your teeth properly.
A bridge or partial are good customizable options to replace missing teeth. The bridge or partial will keep teeth from shifting and at the same time keep your bite in its proper position. Many times bridges and partials are not noticeable and look just as good if not better than your original teeth. Dr. Allen will evaluate the condition of your teeth and discuss whether a bridge or partial is a good solution for you.
