Dr. Berdy will take a 3-D image and mold of your mouth to get a clear view of your bone structure, allowing him to determine the best way to replace your missing tooth or teeth. When you are missing a tooth or teeth, you have four replacement options:
- Implant supported crown
- Partial denture
- No replacement
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that can be used in both the upper and lower jaws. Implants are usually made of titanium or zirconium, both of which are well accepted by the human body. Once implants have fused to bone, they can then be used to support a single tooth, multiple teeth, or dentures.
