  • Dental bridge: A dental bridge can replace one or several consecutive missing teeth, anchored by dental implants or healthy existing teeth that are strengthened with the placement of dental crowns.
  • Dental implant: A dental implant is the most stable, natural looking and functioning tooth replacement option. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or to secure a bridge or denture for several or a full arch of missing teeth.
  • Implant-secured dentures: Using strategically placed implants, a hybrid denture or a dental bridge can be permanently placed, restoring complete function for most patients.
