Dental Bridges

A dental bridge uses the teeth adjacent to the space in your smile to stay in place. The crowns at either end of the bridge are anchored to the teeth, and the false teeth – also known as pontics – between them complete your smile so that you can eat and speak normally again. Dental bridges are made out of durable, lifelike materials that can last for over a decade without any issues as long as you take good care of them.


Dentures & Partials

Full and partial dentures are used for more extensive cases of missing teeth that a single dental bridge cannot correct. Partial dentures can fill in several gaps throughout a single arch; full dentures, meanwhile, can replace an entire row of teeth in one fell swoop. Unlike bridges, dentures are made to be removable, allowing you to take them out at night to clean underneath them and give the tissues supporting them a rest.

Dental Implants

At Southwest Dental, we’re able to place dental implants in-house, and we highly recommend the procedure to anyone that’s a viable candidate. Because dental implants act as new tooth roots, they help prevent bone loss and offer many other benefits that you simply wouldn’t see with traditional bridges and dentures. You can schedule a consultation at our dental office to see if dental implants are the best choice for rebuilding your smile.
