Missing Teeth? We Can Help!
Dental bridges and partial dentures are common ways to replace missing teeth in adults. If teeth that have been lost are not replaced, the remaining teeth can tip, drift, or extrude into the empty spaces, causing both aesthetic and functional problems within your mouth. If you have missing teeth, visit a doctor for dental bridges and partials to determine if these options are right for you.

The Procedure

Partial Denture: A partial denture is a removable appliance designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Impressions of your teeth are taken so that stone models can be made and sent to a dental lab for the fabrication of your appliance, which usually takes about two to three weeks. Once complete, Dr. Timmerman will try in your partial and make any necessary adjustments.

Dental Bridge: A dental bridge typically requires two to three office visits. Two of your existing teeth will serve as the anchors for the dental bridge. These are called abutments and are what keeps the bridge in place. To prepare the teeth so the bridge will fit, Dr. Timmerman will need to shave away some of the enamel and reshape each anchoring tooth. Tooth impressions are then captured and sent to a lab for a customized bridge. A temporary bridge will be placed until the permanent appliance is ready, usually in about two to three weeks. Once the bridge has arrived, Dr. Timmerman will check your teeth and gums to make sure they are in good shape and ready to receive and support the bridge. He then affixes the bridge to the abutments with a sturdy dental adhesive.
