Traditionally, there are three basic options if you’re missing a tooth. The least diserable way is with a removable appliance. A traditional approach would be to do a three tooth bridge. There are many advantages to a three tooth bridge including having a good history of how well they work. One of the advantages is that it can happen very quickly.
A third approach would be with what’s called an implant. An implant is where we place a … Think of it as a man made root and then that is built upon as a replacement. That tooth then becomes just like it’s neighbors with out involving the teeth on either side. Can floss between all the teeth
Dental Implants And All-on-4®
We often recommend our patients replace their missing teeth with dental implants because with proper care, they can last a lifetime. Our specialist partner places the implants and Dr. Anderson restores them with beautiful, natural-looking crowns.
All-on-4® is a special dental implant technique that allows Dr. Anderson’s specialist partner to support your entire set of new upper or lower teeth with just four implants. Working together, they’re able to place your implants and give you your brand-new teeth all in one visit.
A Dental Crown Has Multiple Uses
Dr. Anderson can use a dental crown to strengthen a damaged tooth or as a replacement tooth that goes over an implant. We offer many choices in dental crown materials. And Dr. Anderson even invested in CEREC technology so we can create your crown while you wait.
The Difference Between Dentures And Dental Bridges
While dentures are a removable set of teeth molded to look like your gums and natural teeth, a fixed dental bridge is a series of crowns held in place by your natural teeth that can be removed only by a dentist.
