Patients with missing teeth have many options when it comes to replacing those teeth. Whether it be a dental bridge, a denture, or a dental implant, each of these tooth restoration treatments can improve the beauty and function of a patient’s smile. Each of these three treatments has advantages and disadvantages. By knowing these differences, you will be better equipped to pick the best treatment for your needs.
Dental bridges are series of porcelain crowns fused together. The center crown (or crowns) takes the place of your missing tooth (or teeth). Meanwhile, the bordering crowns provide support by covering the teeth directly surrounding the missing teeth.
Dentures are series of crowns that are encased in plastic and sit on top of your gums, used to replace larger amounts of missing teeth.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium that are used to support dental crowns, bridges, and overdentures.
