Health History Screening
Bridge:A bridge involves 3 or more teeth; pontics fabricated to replace the missing teeth, and 2 retainers (crowns) on either side of the missing teeth.  A Bridge can help restore your smile and your ability to chew properly.  It also helps maintain the shape of your face and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place.
Dental Implant: A true breakthrough in dentistry! They are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body.  Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth without having to remove good tooth structure to make a bridge.  This is a welcomed alternative for the patient that does not desire partial or complete dentures.
