What Are My Tooth Replacement Options?
- Dental Implants: Tooth implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over the course of a few months, the implants fuse with the jawbone, which creates an adequate foundation for a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. Implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
- Dental Bridge: A bridge is composed of dental crowns and a false tooth. This restoration bridges the gap left behind by a missing tooth. Depending on the needs of the patient, a dental bridge may be fixed into place by the neighboring teeth or dental implants.
- Dentures: Dentures can replace the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. They are either removable or fixed into place with dental implants.
