Welcome to the dental practice of Cynthia E. Sherwood DDS, where we are pleased to offer restorative dental options for our patients in Independence, Kansas who have experienced tooth loss.
If you are missing teeth and feel self-conscious about your smile, you are not alone. Many people experience tooth loss, whether from tooth decay, gum disease, injury, smoking, or age. Whether you are missing one tooth or several, we offer restorative dental options to suit your needs. We can restore your confident smile with a dental bridge, crown, or dentures–both complete and partials. Here is what we offer to restore missing teeth:
Dental Bridge: Tooth-supported bridges are made by grinding down teeth to allow adding a bridge across the teeth that will then hold the crown.
Partial Dentures: A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.
Complete Denture: A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentist may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
Dr. Cynthia E. Sherwood and our team are here to help our patients in Independence, Kansas and the surrounding areas renew their healthy smiles with our natural looking replacements for missing teeth.
