Missing teeth may not simply be a cosmetic concern. Spaces and gaps in your smile can significantly impact your health and overall quality of life. Replacing missing teeth can restore the functionality of your mouth, improving your speech and the ability to chew with ease. When left untreated, missing teeth can also lead to more serious – and costly – dental problems. At Florida Dental Rejuvenation, our tooth replacement techniques can rejuvenate your smile with beautiful, natural-looking results.

If you’ve lost most or all of your teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease, then regular removable dentures are not the only solution. Implants can help you by supporting a more secure and stable prosthetic replacement for teeth. Implant placement can be a great option for denture stabilization. A thorough individual evaluation of your medical history, study models of your teeth and x-rays will help a Prosthodontist determine the options available for you.
Among these, a special type of implant-supported prosthesis is a “Hybrid Prosthesis” referred to as a hybrid because it combines the advantages of a fixed replacement with those of a removable denture.
It is especially suitable for those who’ve lost a considerable amount of jawbone over time due to missing teeth.
Dental implants can provide a stable and permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike complete dentures, dental implants are securely fixed in place with a titanium “root” and finished with a porcelain crown. Dental implants do not require any adhesives, do not need any special care, are designed to look and function like your natural teeth, and are becoming one of the most popular methods of tooth replacement at our practice.
Dental bridges are another effective method of replacing missing teeth. Using durable, tooth-colored materials, a dental bridge is designed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth for a natural look. To secure your dental bridge in place, the replacement tooth or teeth will be secured using a pair of dental crowns on the adjacent teeth. Afterward, dental bridges can provide a stronger bite, help protect your gums, and restore the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
Implant Supported Dentures
- Implant supported dentures can provide many of the same benefits as Complete dentures, with the added advantage of increased stability. These dentures are secured into place using a pair of dental implants, virtually eliminating slippage along the gums. Implant supported dentures are also considered a permanent solution and do not require the use of pastes or adhesives.
Complete & Partial Dentures
Complete or partial dentures is the most affordable solution to replace missing spaces. Benefits include:
- Improved functionality
- Improved occlusion
- Minimized shifting of natural teeth
During the consultation process, our Prosthodontist, Dr. Alexis Morales, will help you determine which type of denture may best meet your personal needs and goals.
