Dental bridges are a non-removable option for tooth replacement that feels very natural once it’s in place. The prosthetic teeth used to fill the gap are held between two crowns, which are anchored to your remaining teeth. A bridge can be used to replace one tooth or several teeth in a row; it’s a good option if you’ve experienced limited tooth loss and still have plenty of healthy teeth (particularly around the gap in question).
If you’re looking for a relatively quick and affordable way to replace multiple missing teeth, dentures are the way to go. They have been used for generations, and thanks to the latest advancements, modern-day dentures are now smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants offer the next best thing to nature. They have become the premier tooth restoration over the past 20 years, able to deliver the longest-lasting solution compared to every other treatment. Whether you are missing a single tooth, a few teeth, or all of them, they can reliably rebuild your smile to last a lifetime.
While our number one goal is to always preserve your natural teeth, sometimes the best course of treatment may involve removing one. This may be because a tooth is too damaged to be restored, room needs to be created for a denture, or a weakened tooth is going to be replaced with a dental implant.
The bone in your jaw is preserved thanks to the pressure and stimulus from chewing. If you don’t have teeth, however, the bone can no longer get the stimulation it needs and starts to be resorbed into the body. Bone grafting is the process of restoring bone tissue that has been lost by taking tissue from elsewhere in your jaw (or from a donor) and replanting it in the affected area. This procedure is often performed before dental implant placement, as implants need a sufficient amount of bone to join with.
