Although our mission at Jersey Shore Dental Spa is to maintain the integrity of your teeth and overall health, we understand that despite our best efforts tooth loss occurs. When this arises, you can rest assure that our dentists will come up with a customized plan for you to replace your missing tooth/teeth.
Think of dental implants as artificial dental roots surgically placed into your jaw bone. Once the implant integrates fully into your bone, a crown will be placed into the implant to match your natural teeth. Additional procedures may be required to ensure adequate bone and space requirements are met.
Bridges are connected crowns that act to replace a missing tooth or teeth to restore your ability to function properly or replace a missing esthetic tooth. Bridges fill in tooth gaps with durable artificial teeth that look natural and are attached to the adjacent teeth on either side for support creating a “bridge”. The success of any bridge depends on its foundation- the other teeth, gums and bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it is very important to keep your existing teeth, gums and jaw healthy and strong.
Partial or Full Dentures are removable appliances that provide an esthetic and functional replacement option for those with multiple missing teeth.
