- Restore Missing Teeth
∙ Dental implant – Implants replace and restore one or more missing teeth. Implants allow a specific issue to be addressed without requiring work on adjacent teeth.
∙ Bridge – A bridge enables replacing a missing tooth by preparing teeth on each side of the missing tooth for a crown. The missing tooth is then connected to the adjacent crowned teeth. This type of restoration stays in the mouth and does not come out.
∙ Partial denture – A partial denture is used to replace one or more missing teeth on an arch. This method utilizes an acrylic base that uses clasps that hold the denture in place. This method requires the denture to come out at night to allow the tissue to rest.
∙ Denture – Full dentures are utilized to replace all the missing teeth in an arch. In most circumstances the denture is to come out at night to allow the tissue to heal and rest. In most circumstances the denture can attach to implants to provide a greater support and function.
