Partial dentures are used if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a bridge. A partial denture is created to replace those teeth. The denture is removable and is designed to fit comfortably and to blend in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural looking smile while still remaining functional. Once the teeth have been removed, the partial is important to preserve the bone and to keep existing teeth from tilting and growing in towards the gaps.
Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of stress during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and smile to look brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made out of porcelain fused to metal or all porcelain and can be shaded to match your teeth. Crowns made of precious metal (gold) are also an option. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specifically fitted to restore functionality and to enhance the appearance of your smile. If you are experiencing pain when chewing or temperature sensitivity, ask Dr. Lawson-Myers if crowns are right for you. To learn more, download our brochure on Crowns by clicking here.
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and may cause mouth pain. Additionally, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor at Liguanea Family Dental, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.
You may suffer from headaches, a popping jaw when you open or close your mouth, and pain in your jaw joints and muscles. TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, is a condition many people suffer from, but the good news is – it can often be treated. Based on the severity of your condition, we can recommend a course of treatment that will help alleviate your pain and make your day-to-day activities more pleasant. Ask Dr. Lawson-Myers today if you might benefit from this treatment. To learn more, download our brochure on TMJ by clicking here.
