Tooth Replacement Options from Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’re missing teeth, you have a few different options for tooth replacement at the Carlisle dental office of Dr. Thomas Neslund. We offer dentures, partial dentures, bridgework, and dental implants, allowing you to choose the option that best fits your lifestyle, budget, and smile. Ultimately, we encourage you to complete your smile because missing teeth can erode self-confidence, hinder your ability to speak and eat properly, and negatively affect your oral functioning.

Removable Tooth Replacement with Dentures and Partials

A denture involves replacement teeth set in a soft tissue-colored base. Both full and partial dentures are removable dental prosthetics, allowing for easy cleaning and making this option the most affordable as well as least invasive. A full denture is held in place by natural suction, although you might use denture adhesives to make your denture more secure. Partial dentures are held in place by clips that grasp onto your remaining teeth.

Greater Security with Fixed Bridge

A fixed bridge can offer greater security than a partial denture for those interested in a non-removable tooth replacement. Replacement teeth, called pontics, sit in a row to replace the missing teeth, and these pontics are held in place by crowns on either end of the row. A fixed bridge can also be anchored in place with dental implants.
