What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?
Dental implants are metal fixtures surgically fastened to your jawbone below the gums, onto which artificial teeth can be mounted. These metal implants become anchored to your bone through osseointegration (the bone fuses to the metal). This process provides stable support you can rely on while eating and speaking.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are an attractive option to cover gaps left by any missing teeth. These helpful prosthetics fill the space where one or more of your teeth used to be. Unlike dentures, they can't be removed from your mouth and are secured onto your surrounding teeth.
What Are Clear Aligners?
Aligners are thin, clear trays made to fit your teeth. Unlike metal braces, aligners are removable. The patient is responsible for putting them in and taking them out. Patients receive sets of aligners designed to move their teeth using the same method as braces: constant, gentle pressure.
