Bridges and Partials
Non-surgical solutions for missing teeth
Not all missing teeth can be restored easily with a fixed dental implant solution. Sometimes areas of missing teeth have inadequate bone to support a fixed dental implant. Other times, implant surgery is not an option due to medical history or financial constraints. Dr. Leedy will discuss your options and the pros and cons of each in restoring missing teeth during your examination. In some cases. Like dental implant placement, engineering and designing a dental bridge also requires an understanding of the patient’s gum and bone biology. And just as important, bridges require the same conscientious care as your natural teeth and care must be taken to maintain your regular schedule of dental cleanings at the office.
