Replacing Missing Teeth With Natural Looking Dental Implants
Implant-supported dentures (also known as implant-retained dentures) replace as many as a whole set of missing teeth and attach to dental implants in the jaw to stay fixed into place without shifting or moving.
When one or more teeth are missing, dental implant use custom replacement teeth (dental crowns) to fill areas of tooth loss for a smile that looks beautiful and natural, and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Partial dentures are a common alternative to dental implants when just one or a few teeth are missing or need replacement. These fixed or removable prosthetic devices help patients live comfortably with full smiles.
A fixed dental bridge or removable partial denture uses a system of one or more dental crowns to fill the area of a missing tooth and “bridge” the gap between one or more missing teeth for a fuller, more functional smile.

Dangers of Lost Teeth
When your jaw doesn’t have the support of a healthy tooth, the affected area can experience bone loss of up to 50-60% within six months. In addition to the bone loss, the surrounding teeth migrate into the space of the missing tooth causing tooth misalignment. This can increase your risk for gum disease. When a missing tooth risks your health and makes it hard to chew, speak, or smile.
