Tooth Replacement Options



Many patients choose implants to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or support a denture. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the jaw, where they function as anchors for a replacement tooth or teeth. They also stabilize dentures when there is insufficient bone structure.

We use zirconia implants which research shows to be the most compatible dental material for the body.

Fixed Bridge

A fixed bridge is a restoration that fills the space where one or more teeth have been lost. A fixed bridge is bonded or cemented into place. The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth are prepared and are then cemented or bonded into place.

Maryland Bridge

A conservative fixed bridge, or Maryland Bridge, is bonded behind the adjacent teeth and does not require removal of significant tooth structure. It is typically used in the front of the mouth to replace one tooth.

Removable Partial Denture

A patrial denture is the least expensive alternative to replace one or more missing teeth.

It is light in weight, flexible, and more comfortable than a traditional metal reinforced dentur


Effects of tooth loss and replacement

If you choose not to replace a tooth or teeth, a nightguard or retainer tray is recommended to prevent shifting and maintain tooth and jaw position.

You can always replace teeth at a later date.
