Teeth could be lost for various reasons. Periodontal disease, dental decay and trauma are three major causes for tooth loss. There are three main methods for replacing missing teeth: Implants, bridges, or removable dentures. Implants are considered state-of-the-art and are commonly used when the patient is a good candidate. However, in some instances, implants are not a possibility.
Another option available for replacement of missing teeth is a fixed prosthesis also known as “Crown and Bridge”. This treatment allows the dentist to provide artificial teeth for patients which are esthetic and non-removable. Patients can treat these much like their own teeth. Feel free to contact Dr. Yosi Behroozan to discuss which tooth replacement option is best for you.
