Why Choose Melanie Pugh, DMD, PA for Replacing Missing Teeth?

- Latest Technology Combined with the Highest-Quality Materials
- Obsessed with Giving Patients Beautiful, Lasting Solutions
A dental bridge is a method of replacing one to three missing teeth in a row. The prosthetic consists of a series of dental crowns bonded together, and the ones on either end are fitted over the teeth adjacent to the gap, providing stability. Our bridges are designed to seamlessly blend with the rest of the teeth, and they are also strong enough to stand up to daily chewing, allowing our patients to eat their favorite foods with ease again.
For patients missing several teeth, often the easiest way to bring them all back at once is with a custom-made denture. Partial dentures complete the smile by fitting between various gaps like the last piece of a puzzle, while a full denture sits directly on the gums to restore an entire row at the same time. Thanks to our team’s meticulous approach and use of the best materials, we can create the perfect denture for each patient that looks great, fits securely, and can be trusted for years to come.
Right now, dental implants are the only treatment that replaces an entire missing tooth from root to crown. A small titanium post is placed into the jawbone, and this provides a firm foundation for a patient’s new teeth that is second only to nature. The common trend in modern dentistry has been to use low-quality, aftermarket materials to cut corners on cost, but we're proud to go against the tide and invest in custom Straumann products that are known to last. We only give our patients the best so they can enjoy high-quality results and avoid the pitfalls of patch-work dentistry.
