Teeth Replacement Options
Each patient is different and therefore has different needs.Dr. Colucciello and Dr. Berkow take the time to address your specific dental issues and provide the best treatment to restore your smile. Depending on your overall oral health, budget, and dental goals, we may suggest the use of dental implants, dental bridge, or dentures as your tooth replacement option.
Dentures: Dentures are used to replace the top and/or bottom arch of teeth. We can provide either a full or partial denture depending on your needs. Dentures are a removable appliance that may be removed for proper cleaning and maintenance. Under the care of an experienced dentist, dentures can function and look like natural teeth. However, for a more stable solution, dentures can be secured with the use of strategically placed dental implants. Dr. Berkow or Dr. Colucciello will need to examine your teeth to determine if implant secured dental implants are right for you.
Dental Bridge: A dental bridge can be used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. Dental bridges rely on neighboring teeth for support. The dental bridge bridges the gap between missing teeth with the use of pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns, or abutments. For a more secure solution, a dental bridge can be fixed into place using dental implants. Dental implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
Dental Implants: Dental implants have one of the highest patient success rates due to its durability and comfort. Dental implants mimic the structure of your natural tooth. Dental implants act as a tooth root, which can support a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture as the final restoration. Dr. Colecciello and Dr.Berkow will perform a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, gums, and bone structure to determine if dental implants are right for you.
