Replace Missing Teeth

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into the position of the missing tooth, which holds a replacement tooth in place. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually a more conservative, tooth-saving method for replacing missing teeth than traditional bridgework. This is because implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support; with dental implants, we don't need to put crowns on adjacent teeth that may not otherwise need dental work. Because dental implants integrate into the structure of your jaw, they prevent the boneloss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. Dental implants can also be used to anchor old, loose dentures to prevent them from moving during speech or chewing.

A Dental Bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic (replacement) tooth in place. The bridge is bonded to the prepared adjacent teeth, so that the replacement tooth is attached to its neighbors.
