- Tooth Implants: Dental implants are the most natural option for replacing missing teeth. Implants replace the missing root structure and stimulate natural bone growth. They create a more stable oral foundation. Dental implants can be restored with a dental crown, dentures or a dental bridge.
- Dental bridges: a custom fabricated dental bridge is ideal for replacing several consecutive missing teeth. A bridge can be removable or secured permanently using dental implants.
- Dentures: today’s dentures are more natural looking and better fit than in the past. Dentures can be removable or permanently secured using dental implants. Implant-secured dentures, also known as All-on-four, are becoming a growing trend due to comfortability and ease of use.
- Mini Implants: In some cases, mini implants and the dental restoration can be placed in just one visit to our dentist office. Mini implants are just a smaller version of conventional dental implants. They require less bone structure to fuse with.
