Preventative measures will always need to be part of a dental oral health plan. In circumstances where damage has already been done however, more intensive procedures may be needed to bring teeth back to their healthy appearance and operation. Our staff will keep you informed on the options that will relieve pain, repair damage, improve your bite and get you back to normal function and look.
Bridges: Another way to replace lost teeth, this permanent fixture is typically made of porcelain on top of metal that fits over existing teeth. Bridges are the solution to many of the same issues that implants are used for, and another option for patients, depending on their particular needs and circumstances.
• Dentures: Dentures are a removable option to replace missing teeth. They can be full appliances or partial. Natural, existing teeth may need to be prepared for dentures to fit properly. Immediate dentures are prepared in advance and put in once the teeth are removed. Adjustments for comfort and fit may need to be made once healing has occurred.
After proper fit has been achieved, a patient’s smile is enhanced with easy-to-care for dentures. We would like to be your dental provider in Jenison, please call us with any questions you may have! (616) 457-0450.
