Traditional Tooth Replacement Solutions

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are three common options: a fixed bridge, full or partial dentures, or dental implants. Knowing which one to choose will largely be based on the benefits each can provide. For individuals who prefer a less invasive option, here are the alternatives:

Fixed Bridge

Using healthy, natural teeth on either side of the gap, our team will place a custom-made dental bridge over these teeth, allowing the remaining part of the bridge to rest on top of the gums. This completes the full look of your smile and prevents healthy teeth from shifting and causing additional problems to the aesthetics of your smile.

Traditional Dentures

Whether you need a full or partial denture, we can have a customized restoration made to fill in your smile. While a partial denture works much like a puzzle piece, allowing you to replace missing teeth that are not sitting next to each other, a full denture will replace an entire arch of teeth on either the top or bottom or both.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Known as one of the most versatile and superior tooth replacement solutions, dental implants stand out among their counterparts for the following reasons:

  • Improved oral health: Because dental implants mimic the natural tooth structure, including the root, they will continue to stimulate your jawbone and prevent changes in your facial shape as well as additional bone and tooth loss.
  • Low maintenance: It doesn’t take special tools to keep dental implants clean. As long as you continue to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing each day, your implants will remain in optimal condition.
  • Longevity: With regular maintenance, your dental implants can last a lifetime. The restoration sitting atop your implants will likely need replacement, but your posts are designed to last decades or longer.
  • Enhanced aesthetics and confidence: When you look good, you feel good, so naturally, dental implants will help to enhance your overall aesthetics and boost your confidence.
  • No chance of decay: The restoration and post of your implant are artificial, so they cannot decay like natural, healthy teeth. However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue to maintain good oral health.
