Whether you’re missing one tooth or all of your teeth, having spaces in your smile can have a drastic impact on your day-to-day life by making it difficult to do basic tasks like eat and speak. One of Dr. Baioni’s most special cases was when he was working at a community health clinic and saw a patient who needed all of her teeth replaced with dentures. Not only was she incredibly scared, but she was also feeling hopeless that she was so young and suffering from severe tooth loss.
Dr. Baioni was able to restore her smile and make her feel more comfortable, ultimately being able to experience the immense reward of seeing her let her joy show by flashing her newly restored, complete smile. He wants to offer this same type of hope for his patients by providing custom-tailored solutions to replace missing teeth in Pea Ridge, AR, including bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
If you’re missing several teeth in a row, dental bridges are a great solution to close the gap between your teeth and maintain your dental alignment. The prosthetic itself can either be Emax, Zirconia, or porcelain-fused-to-metal, and is comprised of two dental crowns fused to either end of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. The crowns are used to anchor the bridge in place, using support from your existing teeth. Once secured, you’ll be able to confidently eat and speak.
Many patients worry about their full or partial dentures looking fake, but Dr. Baioni has a keen eye for detail, allowing his prosthetics to look virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth. Both full and partial dentures are made from a gum-colored acrylic base that houses replacement teeth made from custom-shaded ceramic, but full dentures utilize natural suction and denture adhesive to stay in place, so they’re designed to sit over your gums. Partial dentures have a metal foundation that’s made to fit like a puzzle piece to fit between your existing teeth, allowing us to replace any number of teeth along an arch.
