What are my options for replacing missing teeth?

Partial Denture | Brentwood TNMissing teeth or a single tooth is one of the most common dental problems patients have. Replacing missing teeth is important to restore natural form and function to our oral health. When replacing teeth there are 3 main options. The best-case scenario in most cases is a dental implant.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a tooth root replacement that allows a crown or tooth to be attached to it. Once in place, it functions like a tooth, looks like a tooth, and flosses like a tooth.

Dental Bridges

The second option usually considered is a bridge. A bridge is when a person may not be a candidate for an implant. In this situation we prep teeth on either side of the space and attach 3 crowns together that bridge the gap.

Partial Dentures

Lastly, a removal bridge or partial denture can be used to replace missing teeth.  Read more about our dental implant procedures here!
