What are dental implants?
Composed of titanium metal, a dental implant is a screwlike device that fuses with the jawbone to take the place of a missing tooth’s roots. The implant is “topped” with an artificial replacement tooth (it can be fixed or removable) and adds stability to the surrounding natural teeth. Dental implants help people smile, speak, and eat the way they did before experiencing tooth loss, are extremely durable, and can last a lifetime when cared for diligently.
What is a crown and bridge?
Dental crowns and bridges are restorations used to replace one or more missing teeth. Made from highly durable tooth-colored materials, they’re designed to blend in with your natural teeth for a seamless look, benefiting your smile aesthetic, strengthening your chewing function, and improving tooth alignment.
What are full & partial dentures?
Prosthetic restorations that look like your natural teeth and gums, these tooth-replacement options are designed to fill in gaps where your natural teeth have been lost. They’re made from a combination of durable materials like acrylic or metal, and they restore patients’ smiles while improving chewing function and speech clarity. Dentures are also easy to clean and care for, making them a convenient smile-restoring solution for many patients.
