A prosthodontist is a dentist that specializes in the esthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. Our prosthodontist near 90120 works to restores the function as well as the appearance of our patient’s teeth. Missing teeth present a particularly urgent need among our patients, the mouth’s ability to function as a biting and chewing organ is hampered by the absence of one or several teeth and speech may be affected as well. Obviously, appearance is negatively affected by missing teeth. Our practice has several ways to replace missing teeth including using bridges and dentures. These treatments feature artificial teeth that look and function like natural teeth. Bridges can be fixed or removable. A fixed bridge is attached to adjoining natural teeth for support, usually featuring one or several artificial teeth that are hung between existing teeth on either side by crowns on those teeth to support the bridge. A bridge not only replaces the missing teeth and improves chewing ability and appearance but also prevents the adjacent teeth from shifting.
If all or almost all the teeth on a jaw need replacing our prosthodontist near 90210 will use a removable bridge, also known as a denture. A denture features artificial teeth in a gum-like base that is adhered to the patient’s gum using an adhesive paste. Dentures and bridges can also be secured to the jaw using dental implants.
