Replacing Missing Teeth
We offer the following procedures to replace missing teeth:
Dental implants are quickly becoming the procedure of choice for replacing missing teeth. Because a dental implant is implanted directly into the jaw, it is the closest thing to a natural tooth and functions exactly like a natural tooth.
A dental bridge is attached to the two surrounding natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth for support. In the front of your mouth, a dental bridge can be created entirely from ceramic to create a more natural appearance. In the back of the mouth, a dental bridge may be partially made of metal for added strength and support.
Full or partial dentures are alternative and less expensive methods for compensating for a missing tooth, but dental implants and dental bridges are generally more like natural teeth, and are a permanent fixture in the mouth.
