Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth. A post is planted in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or dentures.
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.
