Restorations & Replacement Teeth

Restoritive-If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we offer several solutions to restore your solid smile. A tooth-replacement will not only fill the gap, but it will also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth, correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.

Options to replace missing teeth include:

Fixed Bridges

A fixed bridge is joined to the teeth neighboring the missing tooth, these are called abutments.  The space is filled with an attached false tooth called the Pontic.  Bridges can vary in size depending on the amount of teeth needing to be replaced. The style of bridge we suggest will depend upon the strength and health of the abutment teeth, as well as the location of the gap in relation to the rest of your dentition.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. Implants can replace a single missing tooth, and they can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures. In a brief surgery, an implant dentist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your prosthetic in place. With implant-supported dentures and partials, you won’t have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and sound.

Dentures

A partial denture, commonly referred to as simply a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. The teeth are not in a row, but rather spread across the base to fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.

Full Dentures

A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they may require denture adhesive to hold them in place.

Dental Wellness of Riverton is amazing! I have been a patient for years and they have always been SO wonderful and friendly!!! Dr. Cohen is always so professional and nice. Debbie (dental hygienist) takes such great care of my teeth and it's always a pleasure to see her! The entire front desk staff is the absolute best! When I was laid off and lost my insurance, they worked with me to make sure I was still able to get proper dental care. They truly care about their patients and treat us like family! Do yourself a favor and visit them. You won't regret it!

Dr. Sanya Sweeney is caring, warm, and very thorough. Hygienist Jen is super. I'm moving to Florida and leaving this practice is one of my biggest regrets. Each staff member is helpful and caring. When I left yesterday I got a hug from everyone. They use the most up to date equipment and I've never suffered any pain in any of the procedures I've had. Dr. Sweeney bends over backwards to accommodate my schedule, too. They're great!
