Services: Dental Implants, Crowns and Bridges
Implant and Bridges
Implant and fixed bridges are used to replace missing teeth. The bridge is mounted on natural teeth, while the crown is screwed on the dental implant.
Dental implants are replaced tooth roots. They can provide a permanently fixed, or a removable foundation that match your teeth. Implants help improve appearance, comfort and speech when compared to removable dentures. The solid foundation become a part of you, reducing any slip concerns.
There are multiple types of fixed bridges that can be used in accordance to the patient's needs. Traditional bridges use the adjacent teeth as anchors to fill in the missing tooth, whereas the Cantilever bridge is used when only one of the adjacent teeth is present. (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal or porcelain framework.
