Family Dental Care Provides Dental Bridges And Partial Dentures For Adults in Erie, PA

Dental Bridges, Partial Dentures, and Full Dentures for Adults in Erie, PA

A dental bridge is a custom prosthesis anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. A denture replaces the entire arch of missing teeth. A partial denture is a removable prosthesis for partially edentulous patients who desire to replace teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons who can not have a fixed bridge.

Providing High-Quality Dental Bridges, Dentures & Partial Dentures for Nearly a Decade

Fixed Bridges

Bridges use a natural-looking replacement held together by two natural teeth on either side that replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Bridges are most commonly prepared from high-quality materials such as semi-precious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. Family Dental Care takes into account aesthetics and function when selecting the material most suitable for your teeth. Less than three years ago, Family Dental Care underwent a complete tech-driven renovation, allowing us to shorten the time between bridge impressions and seating the new prosthesis.

WHAT DOES GETTING A FIXED BRIDGE INVOLVE?

Teeth

Preparing for a bridge usually requires the two anchoring teeth to be numb before removing a portion of enamel to allow for the bridge. Next, we take a digital impression with CAD/CAM technology instead of messy impression material. The information is electronically sent to the lab resulting in a more accurate bridge, and can be returned faster which results in less time in a temporary prosthesis. Also, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. If you are unsure if you need a bridge or not, some indication may be, but are limited to:

  • Fill space of missing teeth
  • Maintain facial shape
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
  • Restore chewing and speaking ability
  • Restore your smile
  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a fixed or cemented dental appliance

Family Dental Care uses a CAD-CAM system to custom make some of their bridges and crowns. We have the capabilities to turn some two-appointment procedures into a one-day procedure, making our patients happier, and relieved of pain quicker. After the bridge is created and cemented in place, you will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.

REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES

A removable partial denture may be the best choice if the patient has several missing teeth in the same arch. Impressions of both arches is essential for getting a great fitting prosthesis.

FULL DENTURE

A full denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces all the natural teeth on the upper, lower or both arches and provides support for the face. When a patient needs a new denture the staff at Family Dental Care along with Dr. Johnson and the patient will work together to choose the correct shade, shape and size of the teeth, to achieve the most natural looking denture.
