By preparing at least one tooth on either side of a missing tooth or teeth for crowns, it is possible to achieve permanent space closure.
Titanium roots allow for the replacement of missing teeth as anchors for crowns, bridges, partials or full dentures.
It is possible to replace missing teeth by using remaining teeth (or implants) and gums to support removable appliances. There are several types of partial dentures including traditional acrylic fused to metal, all acrylic, and flexible.
Complete dentures are either all tissue or implant and tissue supported.
