Treatment Options for Missing Teeth

If you are missing several teeth, there are various treatment options available. One option involves the fabrication and placement of a partial denture. But a partial denture lacks a secure connection, and the jawbone in that area will begin to shrink. The denture will eventually shift causing pain and discomfort. A second option, known as a fixed implant bridge, involves the placement of two dental implants with a center crown that sits over the gum. The best option involves the placement of a dental implant for each missing tooth. The implants provide stability and prevent bone loss, giving you a stable restoration that most closely resembles natural teeth.
