In the span of recorded history, humans have attempted to create false teeth out of every material imaginable. Popular selections included animal teeth, seashells, small stones, various types of wood, and ivory. Human teeth were also a historically prevalent source of false teeth. In the middle ages, people in need of a little extra money could even sell their teeth to the highest bidder. Luckily, developments in the field of dental prosthetics have yielded durable, hygienic, and life-like replacements for missing teeth.
At Gibbons Dental, we understand the embarrassment and lack of confidence a toothless mouth can cause. In addition to a “gummy” smile and slack, unsupported facial muscles, missing teeth can lead to a wide range of health disorders including an increased risk of decay, a higher frequency of developing TMJ disorders, reduced ability to speak and eat normally, and the deterioration of the jaw bone.
Dr. Gibbons wants to help you secure a lifetime of confidence and optimum dental health, so he offers bridges, dentures and partials.
