Dental Implants are titanium root replacements or anchors that are surgically placed in the bone of your jaw and can be placed very comfortably in one, in office appointment. Implants help preserve remaining bone and can hold individual crowns, a fixed bridge or if you are having difficulty with movement of your dentures, implants can also be used to help stabilize and retain them. If you are missing one or more teeth from decay, injury or disease dental implants might be the perfect option to rejuvenate your smile and improve your chewing function.
Bridges or (fixed partial dentures) are used to replace missing teeth in a gap or space between your natural teeth, they literally bridge the space from one tooth to another. They are made with a metal framework which is then covered with porcelain. They look and function just like your natural teeth.
