Replace Missing Teeth
Implants are becoming increasingly popular as a means of replacing missing teeth. Typically shaped like a screw, the implant is placed into your jaw bone, acting as the root of a natural tooth to support the replacing tooth. Implants are versatile and used to replace missing teeth and support dentures and fixed bridges.
A bridge is an excellent way of restoring the appearance of a patient’s smile if they are missing one or two teeth or if they prefer not to wear dentures. They are effective at restoring a natural smile, holding the remaining teeth in place, and reducing the susceptibility of the patients remaining teeth to decay and gum disease.
Dentures are removable appliances that enable people who are missing teeth to eat the foods they desire, talk naturally and smile with confidence.
Dentures can be used to both replace all the natural teeth where there is total loss and to fill gaps where there is partial loss.
