Dental Implants

The Best Way to Replace Missing Teeth

Dental Implants:

Dental implants are considered the best and most natural way to replace missing teeth. An implant takes the place of the root of the tooth, and a crown is made to replace the portion above the gums. If you are a candidate, dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth.


As the name implies, a dental bridge replaces a missing tooth by anchoring to the teeth on either side of the space. If the anchor teeth have been weakened by large fillings, this could be a great option for you. A bridge can protect these teeth and replace the missing teeth at the same time. Unfortunately, however, it is difficult to clean around a bridge.

Partial Dentures

Sometimes there is either not enough bone to support an implant, or not a tooth on either side of the space to anchor a bridge to. In these situations a removable partial denture or a complete denture may make sense. Dentures can be difficult to get used to, but they can greatly increase your ability to eat when other options are not practical.
