Tooth Replacement Solutions
- Dental Bridge: A dental bridge can be used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. Traditionally, a dental bridge requires the assistance of neighboring teeth for support. At times, this may compromise the supporting teeth, so we may recommend dental implants to support your bridgework. An implant secured dental bridge offers a durable, stable, long-lasting solution for patients who are missing teeth.
- Dentures: There are two types of dentures: Partial Dentures and Full Dentures.
Partial Dentures: Can be used to replace one or several missing teeth.
Full Dentures: Can be used to replace both rows of missing teeth.
Dentures are custom designed to fit comfortably in the mouth. However, for a more stable solution, dentures can be fixed into place using strategically placed dental implants.
- Dental Implants: Dental Implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are one of the highest rated tooth replacement solutions due to its durability, natural look, and stability. Dental implants can be used to support a dental crown, dental bridge, and dentures.
