Tooth replacement choices
- Dental bridge – A bridge holds an artificial tooth (or several in a row) between crowns. The crowns are cemented onto teeth on each side of the gap. This fixed restoration is usually made of ceramic, for a beautiful match to existing dentition. With a little extra care and good flossing technique, it should last for years.
- Denture – A conventional denture can be an economical solution for a whole arch. With immediate dentures, you don’t have to go a day without teeth! Dr. Carrington also provides partial, provisional, and implant-supported dentures, as well as repair and relining service.
- Dental implant – Since its introduction in the early 1980s, this technique has quickly become the gold standard in replacement of a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch. In most cases, Dr. Carrington handles all aspects – planning, bone grafting (if needed), placement, and restoration – in-house. With CT imaging and computer-guided placement, the success rate of her implants is extremely high.
