If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, that one tooth can be replaced using a dental implant. Your new tooth will look and function just like your other natural teeth.
Dental bridges are composed of two or more dental crowns, with false teeth in between. The bridge will be attached to your implant or natural tooth in two or more places, and the false teeth will fit snugly into the remaining gaps.
You do not need a dental implant for each and every one of your missing teeth. All you need is four precisely placed implants on the top of your mouth, and four on the bottom, to restore your full smile.
