Why Choose John K. Drisdale D.M.D. for Replacing Missing Teeth?
Replace One or All
For our patients missing one or more consecutive teeth in an arch, we offer dental bridges. These prosthetics are made of two dental crowns on either side of any number of free-standing replacement teeth called pontics. The crowns are attached to the two natural teeth located on the sides of the gap in your smile and act to anchor the entire restoration in place. Once they’re secured, you’ll be able to enjoy a completed arch of teeth.
For hundreds of years, dentures have been relied on as an essential tooth replacement solution, and today, many patients still enjoy their affordability and convenience. Here in Midland, Dr. Drisdale offers both full and partial dentures that are precisely customized for a sturdy and comfortable fit. Full dentures are designed to replicate an entire arch of missing teeth, while partial dentures attach securely with the help of clips or brackets. Both options are removable for easy storage and cleaning.
Dental implants are a modern, more permanent tooth replacement treatment that’s great for patients who are looking for a more durable, longer lasting prosthetic. Unlike traditional dentures and bridges, implant-retained restorations restore the entire structure of your missing teeth, including the roots. This provides you with a variety of unique oral and overall health benefits, including prevention of jawbone deterioration and enhanced chewing power.
