What Options Are Available to Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can cause a wide range of problems, from difficulty eating and speaking to reduced self-esteem. Today there are more options than ever to address this common concern, and our practice offers an array of innovative restorative treatments so you can select the ideal one for your unique needs, goals, and lifestyle.
Dental Implants: Considered the gold standard treatment for missing teeth, dental implants can address one, several, or all missing teeth with strong, long-lasting, and natural-looking results.
All-on-4™: Also known as Teeth in a Day, this method uses only four to six dental implants to replace all missing teeth on the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. This approach is often chosen by individuals who find dentures to be uncomfortable and want a more affordable solution than a full set of dental implants.
Porcelain Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is a useful technique for individuals who have one or more missing teeth in a row. This method places dental crowns to replace the missing tooth or teeth and uses the neighboring teeth to support the restoration.
Anchored Dentures: Full and partial anchored dentures snap into place with the help of dental implants for a more secure and comfortable fit than traditional dentures, and they offer improved aesthetics as well.
Dentures: Traditional dentures were the standard option for many decades. These appliances can make eating, speaking, and smiling much easier than without teeth, but they may become uncomfortable or unstable with time. They are also higher-maintenance than dental implants.
