Dental bridges are comprised of two main components, two crowns that are fused to either side of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. The crowns are attached to the two natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, bridging the area with the pontics to create a full operational row of teeth. These restorations are recommended for people who are missing anywhere from one to four teeth in a row.
Dentures & Partials
Dr. Geller uses modern, customizable materials to craft beautiful, natural-looking full and partial dentures in Novi. Full dentures have a gum-colored acrylic base that uses natural suction to adhere to the mouth, improving eating and speaking abilities, while partials have a metal piece that is customized to fit like a puzzle piece around your existing teeth to fill the various gaps in your arch. Dentures are a wonderful, cost-effective option for many patients, making them incredibly popular!
Dental implants combine the best of traditional restorations like bridges and dentures with modern technology and techniques to restore the entire structure of missing teeth, including the roots. Instead of restorations relying on suction or other natural teeth to stay securely in the mouth, Dr. Geller can place a titanium implant post in the jawbone to replace the root structure of one or more missing teeth. Once it has healed and fused with the bone, the restoration will have a firm and secure foundation to be attached to.
