Replacing Lost Teeth

Dentist in Hanover, PA

Bridges

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.

Tooth replacement helps avoid the shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw can occur, causing difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions.

A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. We use strong and durable materials for your restoration. With appropriate care at home and professional care, your dental bridge can last for years.

Dentures

Dentures are a removable replacement for one or more missing teeth. They are used to restore both function and aesthetics. Dentures are custom-fabricated to fit your mouth and match the appearance of your natural teeth. The fit of your dentures may be adjusted as needed to ensure comfort and proper function.

Complete dentures replace the full upper or lower set of teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace one or more teeth when some natural teeth remain. This prevents teeth from shifting into the space left by any missing teeth.

You should clean your dentures regularly using a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser. Keep your regular dental appointments as recommended. Dentures should be replaced every 5-10 years. Ask Dr. Werleman to evaluate whether your dentures should be refit or replaced.
