Partial Dentures for Those in Tampa, Bloomingdale, Riverview, Haines City, Temple Terrace & Surrounding Cities
If you have one or more missing teeth, partial dentures may be a suitable solution for you. Partial dentures, otherwise referred to as a dental bridge, are replacement teeth that are used when at least one natural tooth remains.
With a partial denture, the artificial tooth is most often cemented in place and adheres to crowns that have been placed on surrounding teeth. This new artificial tooth fills the gap created by the missing tooth or teeth and prevents the remaining teeth from shifting out of position. In addition to a fixed bridge, which is cemented into place, precision partial dentures are also available. This is often more natural looking than a fixed bridge and is removable.
If you are looking for an alternative to a partial denture, a tooth implant might be right for you. Tooth implant costs may vary from more affordable fees of $1,200-$1,500 upwards to fees as high as $7,000 or more. While they are often much more expensive than dentures, the implant is actually implanted into your tissue and can provide a more permanent solution for missing teeth. Benefits of tooth implants can outweigh the higher tooth implant cost and include the following and more:
- Improved ability to chew and speak
- Increased oral comfort
- Better appearance
- More durable
