Dentures & Bridges

Missing teeth may cause more problems than you think. Your mouth is designed to function as a cohesive unit, with each tooth responsible for part of the workload. When even one tooth is lost, remaining teeth must compensate. They will shift out of position to function properly. This can cause misalignment of the bite, which may lead to jaw joint pain and bruxism (teeth grinding), as well as cosmetic concerns. Furthermore, statistics show that if a tooth is not replaced, more teeth are likely to be lost. Don’t let missing teeth affect your oral function, appearance, and quality of life.

Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson offers various solutions for tooth replacement, and he will recommend the best option for your unique case.

  • Bridgework – A crown-and-bridge system replaces one tooth or a few teeth in a row. The fixed appliance anchors to crowns placed on healthy, existing teeth.
  • Partial Dentures – A partial replaces multiple missing teeth on the upper or lower arch. Partials can be fixed or removable, and they normally attach to existing teeth with inconspicuous clasps.
  • Full Dentures – Dentures replace all teeth on the upper or lower arch. A row of teeth secured to a gum-colored base fits onto the gums, secured by natural suction or denture adhesive. For the most dependable denture, Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson recommends implant retention. Dental implants are small posts placed into the sockets left by missing teeth. A denture can be fitted with snaps to attach to the implant posts.
