Bridges: Bridges, like dentures are removable. Bridges are made to fill the gaps in-between missing teeth. Bridges will need to be replaced over time, and you may need to see your dentist to have them replaced in your mouth if they fail.

Dentures: Dentures are usually removable, and are chosen by many patients. The base is flesh toned, which provides a natural look. Dentures can be fragile, so it is important to take care of them gently. Dentures will need replacing overtime.

Implants: Dental implants are for the most severe cases. Implants involve placing a titanium rod into the gums, to act as your teeth roots, and then attaching an abutment and a crown. The finished look of dental implants is natural and provides extreme strength and permanency. Implants don’t slip, and you can treat them as natural teeth in the way you care for them. Dental implants provide you freedom of enjoying all of your favorite foods.
