Bridges and Implants

Bridges and Implants

Bridges and dental implants are two options of replacing missing teeth. Bridges are false teeth held in place by neighboring teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns on the neighboring teeth with a false tooth in the middle. Dental implants are artificial roots put in place to support a tooth crown. Implants can replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth. Placing a dental implant involves first placement of the implant into the jawbone, then a period of time for healing, and last a new crown is attached to the implant giving you strong, natural smile.
