What types of tooth replacement options are available with implants?

Crown: A crown, sometimes called a cap, is a single fixed tooth that can either be cemented over a natural tooth and cemented or screwed onto an implant. It is used to strengthen a natural tooth or replace a single missing tooth in conjunction with an implant.

Bridge: A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is a fixed replacement that isĀ  cemented to teeth or connected to implants.

Denture: A denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces all of your teeth. Implants can be used to stabilize a traditional denture.

Partial Denture: A partial denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth.

Implant Denture: A denture that is secured to implants. This denture can be either removable by securing the denture with attachments that snap onto implants or fixed by screwing them to the implants.  This combination provides a substantial improvement over dentures alone.
