Replace Missing Teeth

We are so lucky to have various ways to replace missing teeth.  The most advanced techniques involve the use of dental implants.  But even before implants were introduced, dentists were using Dental Bridges and removable dentures to replace missing teeth.  A dental Bridge uses the adjacent teeth to hold a bridge.  The pros are that it is fast, cosmetic and most insuraces cover this.  The cons are that we have to shave down your other teeth.

Removable dentures use the other teeth and the gums to “hook” on a denture.  The pros are that it is fast and economical.  The cons are that it is removable and not so cosmetic.

Dental Implants are titanium screws that are placed under the gums and then a fake tooth is attached to the screw.  The pros are that it is cosmetic, permanent and we don’t have to shave down the adjacent teeth.  The cons are that it is usually more expensive and can take up to 6 months to finish.
